“Civil Rights in the Movies,” with Chris Fisher and Duygu Monson, faculty members in the Drama / Cinema Department, both of whom have international experience writing, directing and starring in live and video productions.
The discussion will be moderated by William Lindenmuth, who teaches Philosophy at Shoreline, and creator of the highly successful MOOC (Massive Open Online Class),"Philosophy and Film."
How are civil rights portrayed in films around the world? Does “civil rights” mean the same thing around the world? How have movies been a platform for raising awareness of and advocating civil rights? How does censorship and implicit bias affect the depiction of civil rights? Join us to discuss these and other questions.
Also, the second daytime event in the winter quarter Global Eyes series will take place the following week, Tuesday, January 26, at 11:30am in Room 9208 (Quiet Dining Room). The topic will be Online News Media with a panel discussion starring two former Shoreline students who now work for online news organizations. For more details, go to the GAC website.
