The Chicago International Film Festival pays tribute to Geraldine Chaplin on October 15, 2016. Known for her acclaimed performances in films like DOCTOR ZHIVAGO, NASHVILLE, and WELCOME TO L.A. among others, the daughter of Charlie Chaplin and Oona O’Neill will appear onstage at the Essanay Studios - where her father shot His New Job in 1915.
Clips from Geraldine Chaplin’s decades-spanning career will accompany a discussion with film critic and historian David Robinson, author of “Chaplin: His Life and Art”. She will also receive the Festival’s Career Achievement Award.
