Fall 2010

The Theme for the Fall Semester is Dystopias.

We will be viewing the following films:
9/14 Requiem for a Dream
9/28 A Clockwork Orange
10/12 Brazil
10/26 Paprika
11/9 THX1138
11/30 Blade Runner

As we did last year, we will precede each film with brief faculty and student commentary and follow with discussion. Scott Straw and Student Life will provide refreshments. We are always looking for students who are interested in making posters or providing commentary. If interested contact Kevin Burke at
Looking ahead: the was some talk last spring about sponsoring a short film contest this spring. Also, we should start thinking ahead to the spring theme and films. Two suggestions: "Countercultures," and Comedies. The second suggestion arises from the fact that the DCAD Film Club has specialized in exceedingly gloomy films. The idea would be to vote on the funniest film of the decade, going back, say, 60 years and show nothing but comedies for the spring. Input is appreciated.
