We are viewing together films -- including documentaries -- that are "mainstream" [rarely] or "classic" or "independent" or even "different". Always followed by a discussion which follows a certain format. We meet in local movie theatres (like the Broad), cultural centers (like Zeitgeist), libraries (like Mid-City branch), people's homes around the Greater New Orleans area, or even outdoors using a wall and a projector. Online viewing -- like youtube clips, Netflix -- and the better television programs -- like PBS, BookTV -- are parts of our offerings.
As not to make anyone uncomfortable or shocked (except those who enjoy "shocking", of course), there is a warning for any program that is definitely not mainstream, "weird", "offensive", whatever. On the other hand, we are totally into the BFI list of films to see before turning 14.
Join us Saturday, June 22, for a 7pm showing and discussion of a selection of short films directed by Maya Deren.
