Richard Blue Introduces The Olive Trees Of Justice/Hollywood Theatre, Oct. 11, 1:00 PM

On Oct. 11 at 1:00 PM, Richard Blue, the brother of director James Blue, will introduce THE OLIVE TREES OF JUSTICE, an extremely rare film which won the Critics Prize at Cannes in 1962. James Dormeyer, friend and colleague of James Blue, will co-introduce.

Pélégri and I wanted to show the complexity of any such situation; that it can’t be reduced to villainous people and good people – the good guys and the bad guys. How can a past, which seems so happy, produce this present which is in such chaotic form? James Blue

James Blue was Oregon’s first Oscar nominee. He was born in Tulsa, grew up in Portland, and graduated from the University of Oregon.
