I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore! The film “Network” has been praised as a work of keen insight and is KPFA and the New Parkway’s next movie matinee, Saturday September 22nd.
Screenwriter Patty Chayefsky’s clairvoyant vision of the changing television news landscape, predicted the future of media with disturbing clarity.
Network, directed by Sydney Lumet is a stinging satire and also a brilliant take of the flaws of our capitalist society. It stars include academy award winners Faye Dunaway and Peter Finch.
The film centers around Howard Beale, an aging, deranged TV news anchor who has lost his strong ratings, so the network fires him. Beale played by Peter Finch reacts in this timeless rant “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
Join us Saturday, September 22nd at 3 pm for Network at the New Parkway Theater on 24th Street in Oakland between Broadway and Telegraph. More details and tickets online at KPFA.org
