Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane is an Oscar-winning biography of newspaper baron Charles Foster Kane (in essence, a thinly veiled portrait of publishing magnate William Randolph Hearst), who becomes one of America’s most influential men.
The film will be introduced by DAVID REEDER, visiting assistant professor in the Communications and Journalism Department at Suffolk University. Reeder earned his B.F.A. from the University of Kentucky in 1985 specializing in photography and sculpture and worked as a camera assistant for 20 years perfecting his craft as a filmmaker. His credits include Driving Miss Daisy, Fried Green Tomatoes, Ace Ventura 2, RoboCop3, and the NBC television series “In the Heat of the Night.”
