Written and directed by Steven Spielberg, Close Encounters of the Third Kind is a landmark of cinema that helped usher in a new era of science fiction film. Starring Richard Dreyfuss as a blue-collar Indiana man who experiences contact with a UFO, Close Encounters uses gorgeous Western landscape, and specifically Wyoming’s iconic Devil’s Tower butte, as a point of communication between Earthlings and the mysterious visitors from the sky. The film will be introduced by Michele Foss-Snowden, professor of communications at Sacramento State. A Q&A with Michele will follow the screening.

The sweeping landscape paintings featured in the Crocker’s permanent collection and the upcoming exhibition American Beauty and Bounty: The Judith G. and Steaven K. Jones Collection of Nineteenth-Century Painting depict the vast landscapes of America. For this film series, we take inspiration from these collections to offer four films that show diverse views of America. Each film will be presented by a local film expert who helped select the film, and an audience Q&A will follow each screening.
