James Dean Returns to Mendocino

The Mendocino Film Festival and Mendocino Art Center present three screenings of the classic film East of Edenas part of Mendocino: Our Town in Art and Film, a program made possible by a grant from the California Arts Council.

East of Eden as you’ve never seen it before

In Mendocino, East of Eden holds a special place in our hearts: 60 years ago, it was filmed right here in the village. Now, the Mendocino Art Center and the Mendocino Film Festival bring East of Eden back to James Dean’s “home away from home.” We’re delighted to screen this masterpiece three times during the weekend of November 21 – 23.

Join us for a unique experience as film authority Scott Feinberg offers his insights on the film Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times called “one of Kazan’s richest films and arguably James Dean’s best performance.”
