All About Eve: Females Behind the Camera

Diane Thelen, Film Studies Coordinator


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

Women have been successful in the film industry as writers, editors, and even as producers. But the female director is a special breed. She has to be a little braver, a little bolder, and little more persistent, in order for her voice to be heard. In this course we will visit some of the unique works from women who have written and directed films, from the very early works of pacesetter Ida Lupino, to modern-day marvels like the ever-innovative and engaging Sally Potter.


Secrets & Lies: Stories of Real People during War Time

Nearly 70 years have passed since the events of World War II, and even more time has elapsed since "The Great War." Yet today, perhaps more than ever before, the subject matter still fascinates people all over the world. In this series, we’ll take a look at some of the newer films about people's war-time experiences, as well as some earlier overlooked storytelling on this ever-important theme, including the film Suite Francaise, based on the remarkable unfinished manuscripts written in France during World War II, but only discovered in the late 1990s.

We all love our films, whether they are from another country (so we can experience new and unusual customs and traditions), or from our own homeland. From sci-fi to noir, all genres have something to offer. But it's just a little extra special when the film we are watching represents true events, or is based on a real-life person. In this series of films, we will visit the true stories of some extraordinary people and marvel at the amazing things they've accomplished. One such person is Temple Grandin, the subject of a film by the same name. Portrayed here by the equally talented Clare Danes, Temple's story is like no other.


Come Spy with Me: Tales of Espionage and Intrigue

Who doesn't love a good spy story? Well, we know that Frederick Forsyth sure does! In honor of his visit to our museum this February, as a guest speaker in the International Lecture Series, we decided to organize a spy-in - five full weeks of exciting films from around the globe, with only one thing in common: stories that baffle, or shock, or get us on the edge of our seats. Naturally, one of the films we'll see will be based on a story by Frederick Forsyth himself. Some of the films in this series, like Hopscotch, will be old favorites, sure to bring a smile.


Fond Farewells: Tributes to Those We Remember
March 20 through April 17, 2018 / Tuesdays / 1:30 or 7 pm
Diane Thelen, Film Studies Coordinator


Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.

We lost some fan favorites in the entertainment world recently, not only celebrities, but also some who made their mark on the stage and "small" screen. As we say farewell, we pay tribute to those special people whom we let into our lives over the years, who kept us company and brightened our spirits in so many unique ways. We will look back with loving memories and if you find yourself singing aloud at times, it's totally okay!
