Jack White Discusses Citizen Kane


As any good Jack White fan will tell you, the man is obsessed with the films of Orson Welles. Exhibit A: He named his Third Man Records for the movie Welles stars in. Exhibit B: The song “The Union Forever” takes direct quotes from Citizen Kane, and White sings that he is “C.F.K.,” a reference to Charles Foster Kane. But who or what is White’s “Rosebud”? Find out today when White himself discusses the 1941 classic after a screening at Cinema Village. The talk is part of the Modern School of Film’s new series of movies and talks with celebrated artists from the music world.
