Program/Talk

Celebrate the 1980 movie The Blues Brothers as we explore its backstories, mix of Hollywood genres, and impact on Chicago-based filmmaking.


This hour-long interactive talk considers (1) backstories of the 1980 movie and the Blues Brothers' act, made famous on SNL; (2) conventional Hollywood genres and 10 ways The Blues Brothers film, for better or worse, insists on mixing them; and (3) the movie’s impact on Chicago-based filmmaking, with a special nod to Jane Byrne, who served as Chicago’s mayor during the film’s production.
