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. Broderick Fox will screen and discuss the cultural implications of his feature documentary, fresh off a global festival tour including BFI Flare London and LA's own Outfest. The film won Best Documentary at Reel Q Pittsburgh, and Edge Media Network writes "In the process of combing through the insights his three subjects offer around grooming, body hair, gender identity, and gender presentation, Fox’s film uncovers some poignant—and even startling—revelations about social roles, common spaces, and the breadth and depth of masculinity." Prof. Aleem Hossain will moderate a post-screening Q&A with Fox and Madin Lopez, founder and Executive Director of LA community partner ProjectQ. Note the film contains nudity and frank discussions and depictions of sexuality.
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.
