Join MFA Film for a 50th-anniversary screening of «In Cold Blood,» part of the series «Feed Your Head: Films from 1967» at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

The film adaptation of Truman Capote’s controversial novel, «In Cold Blood,» follows the trail of Perry Smith (Robert Blake) and Dick Hickock (Scott Wilson) as they break into the home of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas, commit a horrific crime, go on the run, and are caught and tried for murder. The film was revolutionary in its “you are there” style of shooting, heightened by the use of black-and-white photography. Some scenes were filmed at the locations of the original events, including the penitentiary where Smith and Hickock were executed, and the Clutter residence, where the murders took place. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards: best director, original score, cinematography, and adapted screenplay.

Before the screening, see posters, album covers and photographs from the ’60s in «The Summer of Love: Photography and Graphic Design» in the Edward and Nancy Roberts Family Gallery.

The MFA's Film Program is recognized as one of the country's leading independent exhibitors of film, presenting more than 500 screenings of independent, foreign and classic films every year.
