Film Series: Brief Encounter

1945. UK. Dir: David Lean. With Celia Johnson, Trevor Howard. 86 min.

 

When Laura and Alec, both married, meet by chance at a train station, they embark on a friendship that threatens to upset their comfortable domestic lives. Wafting fog, dreamy voice-over, and a Rachmaninoff score make this abbreviated tryst a perfect prelude to Valentine’s Day, whether you’re a hopeless romantic or firmly in the “love is doomed” camp.

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

FEB ? Love Actually — No, Like Actually ? [ social experiment with free froyo ]

vdayloveNina Stender ’16 wants YOU!

? 36 Questions to Fall in Love ?
Brought to you by the Social Experiment Group (aka SEGWAY)

Hoping to find love just in time for Valentine’s Day? Sign up to participate in a social experiment activity on Sat, Feb 13th at 430pm.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1totAjFIWcxuXw46XoDfUmBklBsfJmnXaLIZ7qoeVmwo/viewform

**DEADLINE: FRI, FEB 12TH AT 8PM**

Participants will be paired up and given a set of 36 questions, divided into three sets which scientists believe “foster closeness”. This is based on the idea that the best way for you to get close to your partner is for you to share with them and for them to share with you. After answering the questions, participants will sit and look into one another’s eyes for four minutes.

There will be FREE FROYO provided to help break the ice ;) –courtesy of the Adelphic Educational Fund

We are hoping to examine whether intimacy between two strangers can be accelerated by having them ask each other a specific series of personal questions. This experiment is based on a published psychological study by the psychologist Arthur Aron. (http://psp.sagepub.com/content/23/4/363.full.pdf+html )

Participants will be asked to fill in a follow-up survey (anonymous!) so we can find out if you guys developed any kind of friendship/relationship/ hookupship etc. We will write up the results and share them :)

Pls let us know if you have any questions/comments/concerns or if you want to get involved.

Date: Saturday, February 13
Time: 4:30 – 5:30 PM
Place: Exley 150 Tishler Hall
Cost: FREE LOVE!!!!!!

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
