NEW! SUMMER FILM STUDIES COURSE!
Spacing Out: Film Travels in Outer Space
July 19 - August 9, 2016
Classes meet each Tuesday at 7:00pm
Tuition: $40 Members ($60 Non-Members)
The public has always been fascinated by the mystery and wonder of outer space. That fascination extends to the film industry, too. In our powerful imaginations, movies about outer space allow us to experience some of what we’ve conjured up in our minds. We now have a chance to visit some of those great early films, and also more recent ones, to see how they have influenced today’s movie industry, especially the sci-fi genre. Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.
Inspired by the summer exhibition Out of this World: The Art and Artists of NASA (June 25-September 25, 2016)

Classes meet each Tuesday (EXCEPT Oct. 11) at 1:30 or 7:00pm

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.
In this series of fall films, we present a mix of cinematic genres, including romantic comedy, poignant stories of childhood friendships, and transformative true-life experiences that address the topic of migrant journeys from different corners of the world. These films examine who these people are, why they leave their homes, and the many extraordinary and touching challenges they face. Come explore with us the joys, hurdles, and eventual triumphs that are depicted in these five extraordinary and powerful films. Led by Fall Film Studies Instructor Diane Thelen.
