Film lecture November 2nd

Ever wondered how movies work their magic? Ever wished you could put into words what you think and feel after watching a good film? If these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, come and hear Dr. Patrick Anderson, professor of American Studies at Colby-Sawyer college, engage us with his lecture "Understanding Movies: The Art of Film". As he states in his introduction, "Since the film medium exerts such a powerful effect on American culture, understanding how film is used to create and deliver ideas is critical. This program aims to show how film shapes and reflects popular attitudes and to give audiences a more sophisticated vocabulary with which to describe and discuss their film-viewing experiences. The lecture uses clips from a variety of motion pictures from the silent era to the present."

This free lecture and discussion will be presented on Wednesday, November 2nd at 7:00 PM downstairs in the Lane Room. The program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Lane Memorial Library. For more information, contact Darrell Eifert at (603) 926-3368.
