It's a great time to be alive! The Cinema Studies club just finished a successful run of Fall 2008 films. And because I am prone to lapses of nostalgia, let me just some up what I saw as some of Fall's high points: Dr. Stephen Gibson talked comic books going underground for our screening of "Persepolis," Dr. Kenneth White inspired us with Buddhist philosophy for our screening of "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. . ." and Dr. Rick McDonald got us to laugh ourselves out of our seats all throughout "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Good times.

But what is on its way for Spring 2009 is going to be even better. Last semester we teamed up with UVU United for Peace and Justice to show films such as "The Times of Harvey Milk" and "The Weather Underground." And Spring 2009 will see this joint effort continue as we bring "Body of War" and "Taxi to the Dark Side" to campus. Plus, we've got 7 beautiful International Films that are really going to make us all better people. I'm not kidding. And we've got 3 of the most foul Cult Films that are going to make us worse people, bring us back to the start. (We strive for balance in all things here at UVU.) PLUS!!! we will be having a few surprise film showings, and trust me, you don't want to miss these gems that we've chosen.

So, keep in touch.
