Robert Redford stars as the title character, a mid-19th-century mountain man who learns to survive in the harsh wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. When he loses all that is dear to him, Johnson becomes a kind of “ghost warrior” who relentlessly pursues vengeance against the Crow Nation. One of the finest westerns of the 1970s, Jeremiah Johnson is a subtle, morally complex film that was shot in the stunning natural environments of Utah.
Widescreen Wednesday Series – Films We Love
Join us for a series of films hand-picked by professors from the School of Theatre, Film & Television! Every film buff has a list of personal favorites – movies that have a special significance. Maybe it’s a film you loved as a kid, or one that resonates with you today. At each film screened this year, a faculty member will give an introduction that not only gives fascinating historical and artistic context, but also explains why they chose their particular film. Bonus: each feature will be preceded by the presentation of a short film made by a student in our Bachelor of Fine Arts program!
