Join EMP for a special event with comic book author/illustrator and Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola, who will present Moby Dick (1956).
Thursday, December 12, 2013
Doors at 7:00pm, show at 7:30pm
Inspired by the Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic exhibition, the Modern School of Film (MSF) is thrilled to collaborate with EMP on the ongoing Film:Fantasy Series, imploring master artists to choose films that define fantasy as only cinema is able. The Modern School of Film (MSF) is a film training and study institute based in New York and Los Angeles that combines in-class instruction with film:master screenings with the belief that you don’t need to be in school to be a student.
Mike Mignola: Legendary comic-artist Mike Mignola opens the series with Moby Dick (1956) directed by John Huston (screenplay by Ray Bradbury). Based on Herman Melville’s novel, Huston’s Moby Dick is the story of the sole survivor of a lost whaling ship who relates the tale of his captain’s self-destructive obsession to hunt a giant creature from the ocean depths. Starring Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab and Richard Basehart as Ishmael.
Best-known as the award-winning creator/writer/artist of Hellboy, Mike Mignola was also visual consultant to director Guillermo del Toro on both Hellboy and Hellboy 2: The Golden Army films. He also co-authored (with Christopher Golden) two novels Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire and Joe Golem and the Drowning City. Mignola lives in Southern California with his wife, daughter, and cat.
