Presenting “Democracy in Film” at Trinity College

We are delighted to invite you to Trinity College’s film series “Democracy in Film” to take place at 7:30pm on Thursday evenings at Cinestudio. The films are all free and open to the public.

As part of Trinity College’s Campus Climate 2011-2012 Action Project “Participating in Democracy,” we will showcase a variety of internationally acclaimed films that interrogate our understanding of the promises and limits of democracy. The “Democracy in Film” series will explore such topics as the effects of US intervention in promoting democracy around the world, the recourse to violence or revolution, the possibility of alternative modes of governance, and the impact of a nation’s past on its political present. Click here to check out our schedule of events.

A member of the Trinity faculty will lead a discussion following each screening. On March 1st, Director Lisa Gossels of “My So-Called Enemy” will be with us to discuss her film.

The series has been generously sponsored by the Campus Climate Advisory Committee, the Center for Urban & Global Studies, the Dean of Faculty, International Studies, Jewish Studies, Language & Culture Studies, Trinity Hillel, and the Trinity Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies.
