Christine Vachon, an American independent film producer, will visit Middlebury College on April 13 to present Kill Your Darlings, which her company, Killer Films, produced in 2013.

The film stars Daniel (Harry Potter) Radcliffe as a young Allen Ginsberg, who, as a student at Columbia University in the 1940s, finds himself caught in a web of love, literary aspirations and murder. The film is based on actual events in Ginsberg's fascinating life.

Vachon is a figure of nearly unparalleled importance over the last 25 years of American independent film. She's produced films by such artists as Todd Solondz (HappinessStorytelling); John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch); and Todd Haynes, for whom she has produced five features including his breakthrough, Poison, and Far From HeavenVelvet Goldmine and Safe. Vachon is also behind numerous short films and other works. Her reputation as a cultivator of new cinematic talent is well deserved, and her films have won many awards.

Christine Vachon presents Kill Your Darlings on Sunday, April 13, 7:30 p.m. at Dana Auditorium, Middlebury College. The event is free and open to the public.
