Michael Imperioli has built an impressive and distinguished career with his memorable performances in such works as The Sopranos, Scorsese’s Goodfellas, Mitch Albom’s The Five People You Meet in Heaven, a variety of films for Spike Lee, and even an episode of The Simpsons – plus, of course, his current ABC series Detroit 1-8-7, which has made him a welcome fixture in our city. On this special evening, Mr. Imperioli will present the area premiere of The Hungry Ghosts - the 2009 feature film that he both wrote and directed. An unusual and provocative drama of interlocking stories set over one 36-hour period, it stars Aunjanue Ellis (True Blood, The Taking of Pelham 123) and Steve Schirripa (Hereafter, The Sopranos). An onstage discussion with Mr. Imperioli about the film follows the screening. Presented in cooperation with the Michigan Film Office.
Tickets $12, $10 for students, seniors and DIA members.
