School of Ed Brings Film on Paul Goodman to Dryden Theatre, Feb. 10

Nazareth College’s School of Education and the George Eastman House are proud to co-sponsor the Rochester premiere of the film Paul Goodman Changed My Life with a special appearance by director Johnathan Lee, who will introduce the film and take part in a Q&A panel following the film. Goodman is touted in the film as the “most influential man you’ve never heard of.” The screening is Friday, February 10 at 8 p.m., at the George Eastman House’s Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue, Rochester, NY, 14607. Student discount tickets are available for $4 in the School of Education Dean's Office, Room 273 of Golisano Academic Center, until 5 p.m. on February 9th.

Perhaps best remembered for his book Growing Up Absurd — a sociopolitical tract on “the disgrace of the Organized System” that both predicted and helped to inspire the radical changes of the 1960s — the late Paul Goodman was also a novelist, activist, anarchist, and urban theorist, as well as a proudly out gay man in 1940s America. Despite his influence and importance, Goodman remains ripe for rediscovery, a situation that director Jonathan Lee has set out to address. Combining archival footage, excerpts from Goodman’s writing, and interviews with his friends, family, and associates, Paul Goodman Changed My Life is an insightful portrait of a figure whose ideas couldn’t be more contemporary.
