SIFF Film Talks series: Paul Verhoeven

Multiple dates through Oct 5, 7 pm
This is an in-person event
$9 - $100

Whether or not you spend much time thinking about the guy who made Robocop, Paul Verhoeven's oeuvre is worth a deep dive—the Dutch provocateur has earned cult status for his dark, satirical, and boundary-blasting films like Total Recall, Basic Instinct, and Showgirls. In this series, SIFF will explore Verhoeven's works in four themed film talks and screen six of his most iconic films, concluding with a showing of his 2021 flick Benedetta (it's about lesbian nuns) on October 3 and a final film talk about Verhoeven's 21st-century controversies on October 5.

In conjunction with this series, SIFF will present six Paul Verhoeven films on the big screen at the SIFF Uptown—Robocop (September 11), Total Recall (September 15), Basic Instinct (September 19), Showgirls on 35mm (September 26), Starship Troopers (September 27), and Benedetta (October 3).

All film talks are held at SIFF Film Center and livestreamed on Zoom.
