In keeping with the constant stream of film review posts that Brian has been faithfully putting up for the last few days, I’ve got a few events you might want to keep your eye on as well -
Doerr Center for Social Justice Education is sponsoring a showing of Morgan Spurlock’s documentary “What Would Jesus Buy.” The event is at 1:30 in the Carlo Auditorium of Tegler Hall, 3550 Lindell Blvd. The Showing is free, and open to the public.
Also, don’t miss Amnesty International’s Sponsored Showing of “Invisible Children.” at Lafayette High School from 6pm until 8pm, on Thursday the 11th. If you haven’t seen this film yet, make a point to – it’s a real eye opener.
There are some pretty cool events going on in town, including a Day Without Gay Teach-in hosted on December 10th at the Tivoli Theater in the Loop. The event starts at 9am, and Concludes around 4pm, with a free screening of “Milk.” More details can be found at http://showmenohate.blogspot.com/
Finally, The Webster Film Series will be showing “Christmastime On Mars,” the psychadelic freak out Christmas feature, made over the course of six years by the Flaming Lips. The film features amazing performances by the band, especially Wayne Coyne as the alien superbeing that saves Christmas. The film shows December 12th, and 13th at 9pm, and the 14th at 7pm. General admission is $6.
