The Ashland Independent Film Festival presents Alex Cox's Walker, from 4 to 6, in the Meese Auditorium, in the Art Building on the SOU campus: with the director, Richard Herskowitz, and Andrew Gay in an informal discussion of the film, focussing on its production, reception, historical context, and legacy.
Walker is a 1987 American-Spanish historical revisionist film directed by Alex Cox and starring Ed Harris, Richard Masur, Rene Auberjonois, Peter Boyle, Miguel Sandoval, and Marlee Matlin. The film is based on the life story of William Walker, the American filibuster who invaded and made himself president of Nicaragua. It was written by Rudy Wurlitzer and scored by Joe Strummer, who has a small role as a member of Walker's army.
