Jared Leto got some love at the VMAs Sunday night with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, but a decade ago he was portraying a drug addict spinning out of control alongside Jennifer Connelly and Marlon Wayans in an artsy (and crazy-depressing) flick called Requiem for a Dream.
Thursday night, the Arizona State University film school is hosting a screening of the movie followed by a question and answer Skype session with one of the film's producers.
More info after the jump...
The screening kicks off at 7:15 p.m. in room 117 of the ASU education building. After the show, producer Palmer West will be projected big-brother style in an on-screen Skype chat to answer questions about the film and his role in making it. (That is, if anyone's feeling up to it after the downer ending.)
The showing and talk is part of the film school's Hollywood Invades Tempe: Skype Sessions. Requiem for a Dream is the first of three events co-sponsored by the ASU Film Association and the ASU Programming and Activities Board.
Future events include Little Miss Sunshine (October 21) and Juno (November 18). Both include Skype chat sessions with producer Jeb Brody.
