Screening followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Amy Heckerling, moderated by Kristen Page-Kirby, arts, entertainment and culture writer for the Washington Post Express.
Amy Heckerling studied Film and TV at New York University and got a Masters Degree in Film from The American Film Institute. Despite this education she couldn’t get a break in Hollywood. However, in 1982, she made Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982), and people started to take notice. In 1987, while Amy was pregnant, she got the idea for Look Who’s Talking (1989). In 1994, Amy wrote Clueless (1995). Amy is a liberal and also an environmentalist and helps environmental charities whenever she can.
Kristen Page-Kirby covers the arts, entertainment and culture for the Washington Post Express. The Reelist, her weekly column on film, highlights and discusses issues in contemporary cinema.
