The Library is excited to continue its new initiative, Feature Film Fridays, where the Library screens a different film every Friday at 1 pm in the Group Study Rooms located on the Main Floor of the Learning Commons. Popcorn is provided!
This week, to honor Black History Month, Feature Film Fridays presents 12 Years a Slave (2013). This film is based on the true story of one man’s incredible fight for freedom. Set in the pre-Civil War United States, this film unflinchingly looks back at the darkest chapter in US history and helps shed light on our country’s current issues with race and equality.
Feature Film Fridays showcases the Library’s moving image resources. Currently, the Library subscribes to three streaming moving image databases. To learn more about these databases, read this blog post about Ethnographic Videos Online and Films on Demand, and this other blog post about Kanopy Streaming Videos. The Library also has a vast collection of DVDs available for students, staff, and faculty to borrow.
So bring a friend and join us this Friday for Feature Film Fridays!
