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.
Visiting Professor Jonathan Wysocki will screen and discuss his feature film debut Dramarama, a nostalgic, funny love letter to drama nerds, late bloomers, and the intense friendships that mark our youth. OUT Magazine writes, “Jonathan Wysocki's Dramarama finally gives the closeted, gay Christian kids of America a story of their own.” The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Wysocki and select cast/crew members moderated by Prof. Aleem Hossain. Note the film contains mild language and sexual innuendos.
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.
