RE: [scifi-12] Documentary about Star Wars fans. One showing only this Friday!

Hi Chris –

 

Were you just sending this out so people would see it, or were you trying to write something along with it?

Are you wanting me to turn it into a meetup?  Are you wanting to be the organizer for it since none of us organizers can go?  I haven’t set up the page for it yet (always much to do), but I have a system in place to become an Assistant Organizer for a 6 month period.  It has a limit so that only people who are active at organizing are on the list, so it doesn’t get crazy, and I reserve the right to remove people at any time if I don’t feel they are the right fit, but I love it when people have great ideas and want to contribute!

 

Let me know,

Nina

"The Force Among Us" -- Showing at the Gene Siskel Film Center located downtown at 164 North State Street. Tickets are $9 for general admission, $7 for students.

From the website: "On the eve of the Film Center?s tribute to George Lucas, the Chicago-based brother-and-sister filmmaking team of Cristian and Cortney Macht take us deep inside the world of STAR WARS fandom. Sociology profs ponder the phenomenon, Joseph Campbell is name-checked, Christian parallels are explored, the 501st Legion of costumed stormtroopers converges at a convention, and the Machts follow fans on pilgrimages to the original movie locations in Tunisia and Norway. Along the way, they discover that STAR WARS fans are a varied and unstereotyped lot about whom no blanket generalizations can be drawn--except, perhaps, a universal dislike for Jar Jar Binks."

NOTE: This is the Chicago premier! In attendance will be key cast and crew members from the documentary as well the stormtrooper costuming group, the 501st! The film will be followed by a Q+A session with the cast and crew. This is the only scheduled showing.

Not a meetup event yet but might be. Chime in on the message board or email the organizers if you'd like to see a meetup event for this.
