CELEBRATE FARGO’S 25th ANNIVERSARY!
Monday, March 8, 7:00 pm
A Lot Can Happen in the Middle of Nowhere: The Untold Story of the Making of Fargo by Todd Melby (and Trylon volunteer!) presents the untold stories behind the making of Joel and Ethan Coen’s most memorable film. It explores the behind-the-scenes creative moments that made Fargo a critical and cultural success, including casting struggles, the battles over dialect, production challenges (a lack of snow), and insights from the screenplay and deleted scenes. Melby examines to what extent the story was inspired by true events (as the film claims), and whether the Coens are trustworthy narrators of their own story.
With special guests, actors Stephen Park (Mike Yanagita), Larissa Kokernot (“Hooker #1”) and Melissa Peterman (“Hooker #2)!
Co-hosted with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Minnesota Historical Society Press.
Free, no reservations required.
