Overview

Earlier this year, filmmaker Nate Parker became bigger news than Birth of a Nation, his own widely acclaimed movie about Nat Turner, when it was revealed he had been acquitted of a rape charge in college. Parker is only the latest in a string of artists (think Woody Allen) whose lives have overshadowed their oeuvres. With moderator Robert Denerstein, our panel will look at the key question of such controversies: should an artist’s personal shortcomings or political views influence the way we look at his or her work?
