HBO Films presents Paterno screening & Q&A

Paterno centers on Penn State’s Joe Paterno in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. After becoming the winningest coach in college football history, Paterno’s legacy is challenged and he is forced to face questions of institutional failure in regard to the victims. Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Al Pacino (HBO’s You Don’t Know Jack; Scent of a Woman) stars in the film’s title role. The film also stars Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience, Logan Lucky) as Sara Ganim, the 23-year-old journalist who first reported on the Sandusky case for The Patriot-News; Kathy Baker (The Age of Adaline) as Sue Paterno, Joe’s wife; Greg Grunberg (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Larry Mitchell (Brawl in Cell Block 99) as Joe’s sons, Scott and Jay Paterno; and Annie Parisse (Friends from College, Person of Interest) as Mary Kay Paterno, Joe’s daughter.

Directed by Academy Award-winning director Barry Levinson, Paterno premiered on HBO on April 7.  Levinson’s producing partner and Paterno executive producer Jason Sosnoff will participate in a Q&A following the screening.


Pizza and refreshments will be served.

This event is sponsored by The Lawrence Herbert School of Communication.
