This Friday, January 20 Cinema at the Center – Why Movies Matter
What is it that is so enticing about walking into that black box that we call the movie theatre? Over the years filmmakers have demonstrated the incredible versatility of this relatively nascent medium. But how do we approach movies in a way that recognizes why they matter? Over the course of the semester we will be considering the ways in which movies are worthy of genuine and considered reflection. While it may be true that we often watch movies for entertainment, the reality is that many movies have more to offer than a two hour break for our brains. Indeed, the best movies encourage us to be reflective about our lives and our communities often while entertaining us at the same time. Each of the presenters in this series will offer us an exemplary film that posits an answer to the question of the significance of movies.
