Start Date: 2/25/2021Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Date: 2/25/2021End Time: 9:00 PM

Event Description

Arranged as part of a collaboration between the Westphal Film & Television program, Black Westphal and DU Bass, this film screening program seeks to establish a conversation for BIPOC people using film to tell their stories. We aim to empower and educate students with the knowledge necessary to unpack what they see and challenge the often-negative representation of BIPOC in the media.

This Film Series is expected to take place over the course of several months encompassing a total of 4 films as part of the 1st series. The first event is scheduled to take place during the last week of February, the 25th on Thursday night at 6:30 PM and go until about 9PM. The even would be replicated on Thursdays once a month moving forward through the end of the 2020-2021 academic year.

The Uncomfortable Truth (Run Time 1hr 25min) will screen on February 25, 2021 at 6:30 PM. If you are interested in attending, please contact Karla Roberts at kr867@drexel.edu.

This virtual event will be held on the platform Kanopy, which can be accessed as a Philadelphia Library card holder. The process of becoming a library card holder is free and can be completed online (instructions for setup and establishment are available in the attached PDF). Upon signup you receive access to 4 movies per month as part of your Kanopy account. We would request that students save one of those movies a month for our presentations.
