Wednesday Nov 3, 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 our seventh film, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Woody Allen knits together two stories.  Dr. Judah Rosenthal is leading a life of secrets that his mistress threatens to expose when he refuses to leave his wife and marry her.  He confides in his brother Jack, who has organized crime connections and offers to make the problem go away.  Cliff Stern is a filmmaker that dreams of making a documentary about a famous philosopher.  However, as a more lucrative option, Stern's wife arranges for him to film a documentary for public television about her arrogant brother Lester, a well-known TV personality.  While filming, Cliff becomes infatuated with PBS producer Halley Reed and struggles with adulterous thoughts.

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
