Turning Points: Common Themes – Uncommon People
October 6 - November 3, 2015

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

The first course for the 2015-16 season will explore important times in people’s lives, when they are required to make vital decisions and forever choose their paths in life. These five films from different countries and cultures explore life-altering moments from around the world. What causes people to change course and find new direction, new purpose and meaning in their lives? These films illuminate how we choose to find that new direction, how that choice distinguishes us, and how we are connected, united, and inspired by the courage to change. Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.


The Marilyn Mystique: The Myth, the Mystery, the Enduring Legend
November 10 - December 8, 2015

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

Bigger than life itself, her attraction certainly continued long after she left us. What is the allure that Marilyn Monroe holds for the public? Revisit the glamour and drama that surrounded this unique woman in a course that will sample films that display not just her beauty, but also her marvelous singing ability and a surprising, developing flair for serious dramatic roles. Beyond the myth, however, she was muse to many, from her playwright husband, Arthur Miller, to the millions of fans who idolized her. Myth or Muse, whatever the secret is, even fifty years later the public’s love affair manages to endure. Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.
