Event Description

Drury University’s Humanities and Arts Film Series returns to The Moxie Cinema for a sixth season this month with the theme, “Humanities and the Future.” An eclectic mix of classic, foreign and documentary films will again be featured this season, with three screenings this fall and more to come in the spring. Grants from the Missouri Humanities Council, Missouri Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Humanities allow Drury to partner with the Moxie to host the films, which are followed by group discussions led by a Drury humanities and social sciences faculty member about the content and themes. All screenings will be held on Saturdays at 1 p.m. and are open to the public. Tickets are $5. This season’s film lineup includes: --the award-winning 1993 French film "The Visitors (Les Visiteurs)"--Nov. 11, hosted by Dr. Shelley Wolbrink, professor of history. It's a light-hearted, sometimes silly film about a medieval nobleman and his squire who accidentally time travel forward into the future while attempting to break a curse. --Nadine Labaki's 2011 film "Where Do We Go Now?" (2011) – Nov. 18, hosted by Prof. Mouhcine El-Hajjami, visiting professor of Arabic. Set in an isolated village in Lebanon marred by religious sectarianism, the film offers a new, critical perspective of gender dichotomy in the Arab world. The film follows Christian and Muslim women of the village who intervene to prevent a full-scale religious war. The women, sick of losing husbands and children because of interfaith confrontations, insist on coexisting under a banner of tolerance. A daring combination of comedy, drama, and fantasy, the film challenges definitions of faith, film, and culture alike.
