About this series:
Film producer Carolyn Pfeiffer has led a remarkable life — working for European stars Claudia Cardinale and Alain Delon, forming her own publicity company with such clients as Robert Redford and the Beatles, helping to revolutionize the American independent film scene in the ’70s and ’80s, and even producing two of the most successful Jamaican films of all time. It is such an interesting life, in fact, that she has written a new memoir, Chasing the Panther: Adventures and Misadventures of a Cinematic Life. She will join us for this special weekend to talk about her many cinematic adventures and will sign copies of the book.
