Film Series Fall '15: Looking Back Moving Forward

The Webster University Film Series kicks off the 2015-16 season with "Looking Back Moving Forward," an exciting and diverse selection of films from a 40-year-old/new release (A POEM IS A NAKED PERSON) to a newly restored milestone of world cinema (the Apu trilogy). 

THE ACT OF KILLING and THE LOOK OF SILENCE examine the 1965 Indonesian genocide with an artful delicacy. THE BLACK PANTHERS: VANGUARD OF THE REVOLUTION documents the rise and fall of the Black Panther party and their relevance to prevailing social conditions. 

The Film Series' "Spike Lee’s First Three" transport the viewer back to the 1980s (JOE'S BED-STUY BARBERSHOP, SHE'S GOTTA HAVE IT, and SCHOOL DAZE), while "A Century through Cinema," the on-going series for the Webster University Centennial, arrives in the '90s and early 2000s (ROGER & ME, CLERKS,and LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE).

Classes are always welcome to attend screenings. Admission is free to Webster students and School of Communications faculty and staff.
