2010 Alumni Fall Film Series, Part 4 of 8: The Castle

7:00 PM  - 9:30 PM
Wednesday Oct 13, 2010
John B. Davis Lecture Hall (JBD), Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

Join us for the 2010 Fall Alumni Film Series named "Global Justice" happening 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Sept. 22-Nov. 10. In the third film of the series, The Castle, the somewhat eccentric Darryl Kerrigan's comfortable world is turned upside down when an airport expansion project threatens to take away the home he shares with his wife and their four children.  Kerrigan organizes neighborhood opposition, hires a bumbling attorney to lead his charge and takes on the magistrates of Australia's high courts to keep his "castle" from being taken by the government.  

Global Justice participants will see eight films selected by Star Tribune critic Colin Covert '74 that take an international look at how films depict justice in various cultures, environments, and political frameworks.  The films for the series include: The Bicycle Thief (9/22), The Verdict (9/29), Incident at Oglala (10/6), The Castle (10/13), In the Name of the Father (10/20), Midnight Express (10/27), Crimes and Misdemeanors (11/3), The Postman Always Rings Twice (11/10).

The registration fee for the film series is $40 per person for the entire series or $5 per person for each film.  Register online here
