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.
Occidental College Trustee, Pixar Senior VP of Development, and Producer Lindsey Collins ’94 returns, along with director and Pixar VP of Creative Domee Shi, to screen and discuss their critically acclaimed film Turning Red. Reflecting on their recent 2022 Academy Award Nomination for Best Animated Feature, Shi notes, “It’s that validation, but it’s also this evidence just to show big studios that look: You can make universal stories that star a diverse protagonist and feature a diverse creative leadership and these stories are universal stories.” The screening will be preceded by a Q&A with Collins and Shi moderated by Prof. Vivian Lin. Please note the 7 PM start time, 30 min earlier than other series events.
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.
