John Sayles & Maggie Renzi Return to Williamstown on Monday [Berkshire on Stage]


Images Cinema in Williamstown will present an evening with independent filmmaking stalwarts John Sayles and Maggie Renzi (“Brother From Another Planet,” “Lone Star,” “Matewan”) at 7pm on Monday (April 11). The evening will begin with an onstage conversation with them about their life and work.

Sayles and Renzi have been creative partners, in life and in art, since the early ’70s, after meeting at Williams College. (He’s class of ’72; she’s ’73.) Throughout their career, their films have epitomized the best qualities of American independent cinema: intelligent filmmaking, impactful stories and memorable characters.

Following the conversation, there will be a screening of the digitally remastered “City of Hope,” Sayles and Renzi’s 1991 award-winning look at the personal cost of politics in a great American city, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
