Arts & Science Documentary Film and Social Justice Screening Series

How do documentary films affect our understanding(s) of current global challenges? How might they engage us in thought and/or action connected to these issues? What are their potentials and limitations as vehicles for stimulating positive social change? The Arts & Science Documentary Film & Social Justice screening series seeks to explore these and related questions. Join us as we screen of a range of contemporary documentary films, and engage in informal discussion of the ways in which these texts represent global challenges and encourage (or discourage) particular kinds of viewer response.
