A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an invitation to hypnosis.
Cabin fever getting the best of you? Escape to 2011, when a film was released that foreshadowed much of what we are experiencing during this covid-19 upheaval. On April 20 the DigiURI Media Club will discuss Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" -- which is topping streaming charts in recent weeks. Does this movie hit close to home? Why is it so popular right now? Is it comforting or panic-inducing? Does it have educational value? What about production quality? Join us to talk about all this and more. Popcorn optional (but highly encouraged)!
DATE: Monday, April 20
TIME: 12pm EST
LOCATION: Online. Register for the webinar here.
