Video: Professor Jonathan Lethem Discusses "They Live"

Disney Professor of Creative Writing Jonathan Lethem held a screening last Tuesday of the 1980s sci-fi cult classic They Live, a movie on which he wrote a book of the same name for the new publishing imprint Deep Focus. After the screening, Lethem discusses his fascination with the film, the deep cinematic knowledge that John Carpenter brought to the action film, and the strange sympathy elicited for the seemingly villanious aliens.

Watch below for his comments following the screening, as well as an audience Q&A. To read more about the film and Lethem's book, please read our initial article about the event.
