Last fall, for example, Alex Karposky, a star of the hit HBO series, Girls, and a successful independent filmmaker, joined to speak about his film, The Hole Story. Boston-based musician Al Kooper of Blood, Sweat & Tears honored his friend and fellow rock-'n'-roller Mike Bloomfield at the screening of Sweet Blues: A Film About Mike Bloomfield, a documentary about the life of the Jewish guitarist. And as part of the annual series, "Favorite Films From the Famous," Anita Diamant, best-selling author of The Red Tent, presented Hester Street, the comedy starring Carol Kane, whose performance earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress in 1975.
