The Gene Siskel Film Center presents screenings of a new film — CREATIVE WRITING. By Chicago indie filmmaker and college writing/media professor, Seth McClellan. The drama, which screens October 24, 26, & 28, centers on a racially charged confrontation that happens in a creative writing classroom in which Seth and his students play fictionalized versions of themselves. The film explores not only issues of race but also the “idea” of being a writer vs. the reality of the hard work it entails–and the question of whether talent can be taught. Seth recommends the film for anyone who’s ever said, “I want to be famous.”
