Subject: Love Films? Free Screening this Wednesday & IDIWS Coming Soon!


Wide Screen Wednesdays


Join us for a series of films hand-picked by professors from the School of Theatre, Film & Television! Every film buff has a list of personal favorites – movies that have a special significance. Maybe it’s a film you loved as a kid, or one that resonates with you today. At each film screened this year, a faculty member will give an introduction that not only gives fascinating historical and artistic context, but also explains why they chose their particular film.

Bonus: each feature will be preceded by the presentation of a short film made by a student in our Bachelor of Fine Arts program!



Robert Redford stars as the title character, a mid-19th-century mountain man who learns to survive in the harsh wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. When he loses all that is dear to him, Johnson becomes a kind of “ghost warrior” who relentlessly pursues vengeance against the Crow Nation. One of the finest westerns of the 1970s , Jeremiah Johnson is a subtle, morally complex film that was shot in the stunning natural environments of Utah.

Spike Lee's breakout hit is one of the most controversial and important American films of the last few decades. Lee stars as Mookie, a pizza deliveryman in Brooklyn, who is caught in the middle of tensions between his Italian-American boss, Sal, and the African-American community that patronizes Sal's pizzeria. Dealing with questions of race relations, police violence, and tolerance,  Do The Right Thing is as timely and thought-provoking today as it was in 1989.
