The following comes to us from Ph.D. student Eddie Whitewolf:
This Thursday, September 27th, the American Studies Film Series will be presenting its first free screening of the year! This year, we’ve incorporated the departmental theme of the American Dream in programming the series, and thus we’ll be starting off with Tim Burton’s 2003 film Big Fish. Starring Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney, Billy Crudup, and Jessica Lange, Big Fish operates as a wonderful example of a fantastical and myth-filled version of the American Dream.
On the horizon, we’ve been planning on programming an interesting selection of films that incorporate the American Dream, as well as the space of the dream in general! So please join us each month, we’ve got a great selection of diverse films to enrich our perspectives while having a good time.
Note: the film will begin at 6pm, not 7pm, as the flyer states.
