Join us for the book launch of "ReFocus: The Later Films and Legacy of Robert Altman," published through University of Edinburgh Press’s American Director Series. Speakers include Phil Hallman, U-M Library, and the book's editors: Lisa Dombrowski, Center for Film Studies, Wesleyan University; and Justin Wyatt, Harrington School of Communication and Media, University of Rhode Island.

Illuminating the industrial, cultural, and aesthetic significance of the later years of one of American cinema’s most influential auteurs, the anthology combines scholarly essays, original interviews with Robert Altman’s collaborators, and previously unseen photographs from the Robert Altman Papers held at the Special Collections Research Center, U-M Library. Contributors from the book will discuss how the archive functioned in its formation and the challenges of putting a large-scale anthology together.
