Well Wesleyan, it’s that time of year again: the Film Series has returned! If you need break from the madness of move-in and desperate (but not desperate-sounding) emails to professors, head over to Goldsmith on Wednesday, September 3 for 2001: A Space Odyssey, the first film of the Series. Other highlights include classics Jaws and Chinatown, new releases Obvious Child and Edge of Tomorrow, and R. Kelly’s own Trapped in the Closet. This calendar also features a Female Filmmaker series on Thursdays — 6 films from a diverse lineup of female directors — as well as a “Masterworks in Color” Saturday mini-series and an “Identity Crisis” Wednesday mini-series.
For those of you new to the Film Series: Films are screened four nights a week (Wednesday-Saturday) at 8 p.m in Goldsmith Family Cinema at the Center for Film Studies. Wednesday and Fridays screenings are $5 (payable with your student account); Thursday and Saturday screenings are free. Films are shown in 35mm prints whenever possible.
