Events and Conferences
The Cinema of Environmental Crisis
Join SFU Woodward's and Dr. Anil Narine in examining 'eco-cinema', films that show the public the possible hazards of an environment gone awry. Do they inspire viewers to activate themselves in trying to save the world from destruction or do they shut us off and just become an ordinary movie, cut off from actual experiences of suffering?
This is a free event and everyone is welcome to join!
Date: Thursday October 29, 2015
Time: 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Location: Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 West Hastings St.
Dr. Narine teaches cinema studies and communication at the University of Toronto and edited recent publication Eco-Trauma Cinema (2015).
