MAC Cinematheque presents…Oxy Creates! Media by MAC Faculty and Oxy Alums.
An innovative event series of film screenings and discussions moderated by Media Arts & Culture (MAC) faculty, MAC Cinematheque is designed to bring together the College and Los Angeles communities around a chosen topic, representational issue, or media form. For 22-23, the theme is “Oxy Creates!” the first time the series has focused solely on media produced by MAC faculty and Oxy alumni. All events take place in the Choi Auditorium and are free and open to the public, with first come, first served seating.
Prof. Aleem Hossain will screen and discuss his sci-fi dramatic feature set in a near-future Los Angeles. The film garnered the Best Film Award at Sci-Fi London, and Film Threat calls it “A shining example of indie filmmaking at its finest.” Hossain will be joined by cinematographer Julie Kirkwood, lead actor Brian Silverman, VFX supervisor Blaise Hossain, and composer Chanda Dancy in a post-screening Q&A moderated by Prof. Jonathan Wysocki. Note the film is rated R for violence and language.
Directions to campus are accessible here. Choi Auditorium and parking are noted on this campus map. For the health and welfare of all, high-quality masks (surgical, KN95, KF94, or N95) are strongly recommended in the theater.
The series is sponsored by the Media Arts & Culture Department (MAC), Institutional Advancement, Alumni and Parent Engagement, Oxy Arts, and the Oxy Film Club, with generous support from the Remsen Bird Fund and Ronald R. and Susan C. Hahn ’66 ’65.
This is a Core 99 Event.
