8 Films That Changed America

Icicle Creek Center for the Arts - Snowy Owl Theater - 7409 Icicle Road, Leavenworth, WA 98826

While most works of cinema are produced for mass-entertainment and escapism, a peculiar minority have had a profound impact on our culture. Whether intentionally or not, some movies have brought social issues to light, changed laws, forwarded ideologies both good and bad, and altered the course of American history through their resounding impact on society.

Professor Marc Lapadula is a playwright and screenwriter with more than 20 years of award-winning teaching experience. His plays, including Dancer, Not by Name, Two Shakes, Last Order, The Rains Change, and In Uniform Thanksgiving, have been produced in New York (off-Broadway), England, Pennsylvania, DC, Maryland and Iowa. He has been commissioned and/or received options for several screenplays: Distant Influence, Night Bloom, Out Of Nowhere, At Risk and an adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov’s Heart of a Dog, to name a few. He has taught at Johns Hopkins, the University of Pennsylvania, Columbia Graduate Film School, and, for over twenty years, he has taught and run the screenwriting program at Yale University as a senior lecturer. He has also led the Screenwriting Series at the Smithsonian Institution. He is a script consultant/ expert analyst for film producers and studios, among them New Line Films. He has produced two movies. Angel Passing, starring Hume Cronyn, premiered at The Sundance Film Festival and went on to win several major awards.
