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.
Gabriela Cowperthwaite ’93 will screen and discuss her latest feature documentary The Grab, which continues her tradition of changemaking media demonstrated by Blackfish (2013). In The Grab, Cowperthwaite follows journalist Nathan Halverson and his team at the Center for Investigative Reporting as they lay bare the mechanisms through which wealthy corporations and government forces are grabbing up land and water rights globally. The San Jose Mercury News writes, “As suspenseful as it is demanding and damning, Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s gripper issues a wake-up call to the global community and offers testimony on why we need investigative journalism.” The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Cowperthwaite moderated by Prof. Broderick Fox.
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.
