Join the IOP as we welcome renowned filmmaker Jay Roach for a screening and discussion of his film All the Way, which tells the story of President Lyndon Johnson’s first year in office. Following the screening, Mr. Roach will be joined by author and producer Jeremy McCarter to discuss the intersection of arts and politics, the role of storytelling in public life, and the challenges of capturing historical figures in dramas.
Mr. Roach, a visiting IOP Pritzker Fellow for the Winter 2018 quarter, is an Emmy-award-winning director for Recount and Game Change. Mr. McCarter is the author of Young Radicals; co-author, with Lin-Manuel Miranda, of Hamilton: The Revolution; and founder and executive producer of Make-Believe Association.
