Geraldine Chaplin

Tribute: Geraldine Chaplin

  •   Tribute

You’re invited to a once-in-a-lifetime event…

The daughter of screen legends Charlie Chaplin and Oona O’Neill, Geraldine Chaplin quickly became Hollywood royalty herself since making her screen debut in her father’s own Limelight. Over the course of her half-century-plus acting career, Chaplin has worked with the world’s greatest directors, including David Lean (Doctor Zhivago), Robert Altman (Nashville), Martin Scorsese (The Age of Innocence), Claude Lelouch (Bolero), and Pedro Almodòvar (Talk to Her). In 1992 she played her own grandmother, Hannah Chaplin in Richard Attenborough’s Chaplin, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination—the third of her career. More recently, she won a Festival Silver Hugo for Best Actress in the 2014 independent drama Sand Dollars.

Geraldine Chaplin will appear onstage at the Essanay Studios, the exact soundstage where her father shot His New Job, his first film in Chicago, for this once-in-a-lifetime evening. Clips from her career, as well as her father’s Essanay film, will accompany a wide-ranging conversation on her life, work and family with Festival Founder Michael Kutza.

8:00pm – Tribute and Award presentation
