Come hear about student forum ENG420: DIGITAL JOURNALISM, a semester-long course where we will focus on producing online content and developing our portfolio. This writing-intensive seminar will introduce students to a variety of forms, from the interview, to the profile, to data-based storytelling. We will be skyping with numerous alumni in the industry, and your work will have the opportunity to be published online via Method Magazine. Multi-media projects will be highly encouraged.

Sophia Jennings ’16 and Ben Romero ’16 will be leading the student forum.

Date: Monday, January 25
Time: 7-8PM
Place: 41 Wyllys, Room 113

Film Series: Johnny Guitar

1954. USA. Dir: Nicholas Ray. With Joan Crawford, Sterling Hayden. 110 min.

 

Crawford commands the screen as a strong-willed saloon owner whose clash with locals over the construction of a railroad is complicated by the return of her guitar-slinging former lover. Shot in vivid Tru-Color, this unique blend of western and woman’s picture is a film only Ray (Rebel Without a Cause) could make.

Tonight / 8 p.m. / Goldsmith Family Cinema / Free
