UCB’s PACIFIC FILM ARCHIVE HOSTS GHOST WORLD SCREENING AND BOOK RELEASE PARTY

Join the Pacific Film Archive in celebrating the charmed works of two Bay Area originals: Filmmaker Terry Zwigoff and cartoonist and screenwriter Daniel Clowes.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 26, 2008 at 6:30 p.m.

Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

2625 Durant Avenue #2250 • Berkeley, CA 94720 • (510) 642-1124

Clowes and Zwigoff will host a special screening of the Ghost World film, followed by a Q&A and book signing to celebrate the release of Ghost World: Special Edition.

This deluxe new edition of the bestselling graphic novel expands the original book — which tells the story of two best friends, Enid and Rebecca, facing the prospect of growing up and apart — from 80 pages into a 288 page, behind-the-scenes tour through the making of both the classic book and the subsequent hit film. Including a new introduction and several pages of new strips by Clowes, as well as over 200 pages of "extras": the Oscar-nominated screenplay by Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, dozens of pages of never-before-collected ephemera, including unused concept drawings, notes, movie posters, foreign edition covers, merchandise, and much more, all annotated by Clowes. Truly lavish, definitive and comprehensive.

"I really identified with the girls in Ghost World. They made me feel like I wasn't so alone." – Lisa Simpson, The Simpsons
