Screenings galore at AU and Katzen

Two exciting documentary screening series are starting on campus this week. It's probably best just to list them.

  • Tonight at 7pm in Wechsler Theater, the Center for Environmental Filmmaking kicks off its spring film series with National Geographic's War Elephants, a new documentary about the perilous state of elephant populations in conflict-torn Africa. The film is free and open to the public. You can see a full list of their upcoming screenings here.
  • Starting this Wednesday at 7pm, the American University Museum at Katzen will begin the Katzen Cinema Series of films related to their current exhibits. The first entry, The Face of Russia: Part 3, examines the history of Russian politics and culture through the lens of art. The series continues on March 6th with Women Art Revolution, on April 17th with Double Take, and on May 8th with Guest of Cindy Sherman. The screenings are free and come with popcorn.
Both these are great opportunities to watch notable films — some old and some new — on the cheap. Take advantage of these while they're on campus!
