Big Fan

Movie Screening
Time: 8:00pm
Location: Dana Auditorium

Robert Siegel, USA, 2009

Paul Aufiero, a hardcore New York Giants football fan, struggles to deal with the consequences when he is beaten up by his favorite player. A dark comedy playing on obsession, strained family relations, and unwanted media attention, Robert Sigel (Writer, The Wrestler) makes his directorial debut. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, and winner of The Gotham Award’s Breakthrough Director Award, Big Fan is “A spasmodically funny and bleak film about the love that speaks its name” (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times).

This film is screened in conjunction with the exhibition Mixed Signals: Artists Consider Masculinity in Sports on view at the Middlebury College Museum of Art.
