Workhouse Film Institute: Before Sunrise

by Public User Archive

The Workhouse Film Institute is proud to present the film Before Sunrise on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30pm in Gallery W-16.

Before Sunrise is a 1995 drama directed by Richard Linklater. The film follows Jesse (Ethan Hawke), a young American, and Céline (Julie Delpy), a young French woman, who meet on a train and disembark in Vienna, where they spend the night walking around the city and getting to know one another. Before Sunrise revolves largely around the twin themes of self-fulfillment and self-discovery through a significant other, charging this concept through the introduction of a twelve-hour time constraint, in which the goals implicit to the two themes have to be realized.

The screening will be followed by a guest lecture/Q&A with independent film critic, Ryan Dean. Ryan Dean Halbrook originally hails from St Louis, Missouri. From a young age, he felt a strong connection and pull towards the world of film. He went to The Cobb County Center for Excellence in the Performing Arts Conservatory during high school in Atlanta, Georgia. Then he attended Shenandoah University and Conservatory for acting, and while there was the film critic for the University Newspaper “The Sun”. After leaving Shenandoah, he went to pursue an acting career, and has performed from L.A. to New York. Ryan was also film critic for the website Filmdom for a few years. He is also the co-author of a children’s musical “Martin: The King of Pizza” with Matt Conner and A.K. Brink, which opened the new space for Creative Cauldron in Falls Church, Virginia in 2009. He currently resides in Alexandria, Virginia.
