VIS Fall Film Series: Desiree Akhavan, The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Writer-Director

November 28, 2018 · 7:00 pm EST · James Stewart Film Theater

John Sacret Young ’69 Lecture Series

Come see writer-director Desiree Akhavan talk about her new film, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, winner of the Sundance Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. This empathic and humorous film set in a gay conversion therapy camp follows Cameron Post (played by Chloë Grace Moretz) as she finds her authentic voice despite stifling circumstances. Akhavan’s eye for eccentric details and gift for one-liners makes her one of the most singularly exciting new voices in independent film.

A Q&A with Akhavan will follow the film screening.
