RiverRun Retro: Now, Voyager Screening with guest Monika HenreidNov 3, 7:30pmSoutheastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA)RiverRun International Film Festival welcomes filmmaker and actress Monika Henreid for two programs about her father: actor, director and Hollywood Blacklist survivor Paul Henreid. Widely remembered for his role as raconteur Victor Laszlo in the iconic "Casablanca," Henreid appeared in a wide range of films across a variety of genres including "Now, Voyager," "Devotion," "The Spanish Main," “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” "Of Human Bondage," "Night Train to Munich," "In Our Time," "Song of Love," "Deception," "Rope of Sand" and many others. After defending free speech during the McCarthy era, he was semi-Blacklisted until Alfred Hitchcock hired him to direct 28 episodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents," launching a prolific chapter in Henreid’s career as a director for film and television. His last film appearance as an actor was in "Exorcist II: The Heretic."

On Friday, November 3, Monika Henreid will participate in a program at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) in Winston-Salem where she will discuss her dad’s career with Dale Pollock, professor at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. The program begins at 7:30 pm and will also include a screening of "Now, Voyager" and a reception. Tickets are $15 and available online at secca.org or at the door. Student tickets are $10 and are available at the door with a valid ID.
