Casablanca is one of classical Hollywood’s greatest romances, but its underlying story concerns the plight of European refugees, an unusually timely, urgent theme for today.

This event, which focuses on the refugee theme of the film, includes a screening of Casablanca and a conversation with Noah IsenbergLang professor of Culture and Media and author of We’ll Always Have Casablanca: The Life, Legend, and Afterlife of Hollywood’s Most Beloved Movie (Norton, 2017), and Alexander Aleinikoff, director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School. Moderated by A.O. Scott of The New York Times.
