Faculty member organizes film series

September 20, 2013

The Jacksonville Public Library and MacMurray College are co-sponsoring a film series free and open to all.

 The Humanities Film Series kicks off its inaugural year with “Perspectives on War,” screenings of four seminal war films and discussion periods hosted by MacMurray faculty and the director of the Public Library.

 The screenings, which are 6-9 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, are free and open to the public and will be held in the basement meeting room of the Jacksonville Public Library.

 “These films reveal the human condition, particularly in relation to the experience and effect of war,” said Chris Strangeman, assistant professor of history at MacMurray, who organized the series. “The series will give people in the area a chance to screen superb films and discuss them with others in the community who  are interested in film.”

 The four films are:

“These films are some of the best films on the experience of war – and in general on human nature under stress,” said Chris Ashmore, director of the Jacksonville Public Library. “We expect that the viewings of these films and discussions afterwards will enrich the arts and humanities opportunities in Jacksonville and the area.”
