University of Michigan’s Hatcher Library is home to extensive archives and materials documenting the careers of several American filmmakers known for coloring outside the lines: Robert Altman, Ira Deutchman, Nancy Savoca, John Sayles, and Orson Welles. Together they make U-M a major destination for research on these American maverick filmmakers.

Join us this June as we celebrate ALAN RUDOLPH as a member of this prestigious group. Panels, screenings, and special guests (including Mr. Rudolph himself) will take part.
