Film Cincinnati is hosting a Zoom happy hour with Killer Films' Independent Spirit Award-winning producer Christine Vachon.
Vachon is no stranger to the Queen City. She's filmed five projects in town — Todd Haynes' Academy Award winner Carol, a 1950s lesbian romance starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, based on the novel The Price of Salt by Patricia Highsmith; legal thriller Dark Waters, starring Mark Ruffalo as real-life Cincinnati attorney Robert Bilott as he battles chemical company DuPont; 1960s crime drama A Kind of Murder, starring Patrick Wilson and Jessica Biel and again based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, The Blunderer; Goat, that James Franco and Nick Jonas frat hazing movie; and My Days of Mercy, starring Kate Mara and Ellen Page in a lesbian romance where one is a death penalty protestor and the other is the lawyer daughter of a police officer.
The free happy hour, which takes place at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 21, will be co-hosted by Film Cincinnati's executive director Kristen Schlotman and Bob Igoe from I & Eye Productions.
Founded in 1995, Killer Films is the company behind award winners including Boys Don't Cry, Still Alice, Carol, I'm Not There and Far from Heaven.
