At the University of Albany,New York:
1939 film "Wuthering Heights" to be screened Friday, March 6, 2015
Screening tie-in with new book by novelist Caryl Phillips, who will visit the Writers Institute on March 10

This adaptation of Emily Brontë's tempestuous romance-one of the most enduring classics of English literature-received eight Academy Award nominations, including one for "Best Picture" in a year considered by many critics to be the most competitive in American film history. The film stars Merle Oberon, Laurence Olivier, and David Niven. The screening is in association with the upcoming appearance of award-winning fiction writer Caryl Phillips, who reimagines elements of WUTHERING HEIGHTS in his new novel, The Lost Child (2015). Phillips will appear at the Writers Institute on Tuesday, March 10 to read from and discuss his new novel.
