Frostburg State University’s 2006-2007 International Film Series begins with “Fahrenheit 911” on Thursday, Sept 28, at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center Atkinson Room 201. The series is sponsored by FSU Center Stage.
One of the most controversial and provocative films of the 21st century, “Fahrenheit 9/11” is Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore’s searing examination of the Bush administration’s actions in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. The film shows us a nation kept in constant fear by FBI alerts and lulled into accepting a piece of controversial legislation, the USA Patriot Act. Fahrenheit 9/11 takes us inside the war in Iraq to tell the stories we haven’t heard, illustrating the awful human cost to U.S. soldiers and their families.
A second international film scheduled for this semester is “East-West” on Thursday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. This movie is in French with English subtitles. “East-West” follows the struggle of a Russian emigrant living in France with his young family as he returns to Russia, only to be devastated by Stalin’s newest campaign.
All film showings are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Lane University Center Information Desk at 301-867-4411.
