25th ANNUAL JUNE LUNCHEON
MONDAY, JUNE 11, 12:30 PM
PSC Union Hall (16th floor)
[Note the changed venue]
[NOTE THE VENUE CHANGE: After telling us that we could have the venue at no charge, Baruch College, a month after we made the reservation, informed us that there would be a very hefty charge for the space. We immediately switched the venue to the PSC Union Hall -- same date and time, same menu and same program. Everyone who made a reservation will be informed of the changed venue by mail and where possible, email and phone. Obviously, all reservations made for the Baruch venue are valid for the PSC Union Hall.]
THE POLITICAL USES OF CINEMA: Film scholar Jonathan Buchsbaum, Professor of Media Studies at Queens College and the Graduate Center and author of numerous books on cinema, will explore the political dimension of film from the 1930s to the present time. Using video clips, his presentation will focus on particular moments in the political uses of cinema: state-sponsored documentary films in the '30s; the cinema-verité of the '60s; and in the contemporary period, Michael Moore's work.
Professor Buchsbaum has curated the PSC’s film series – Labor Goes to the Movies – since its inception.
There will be an 11 AM coffee hour pre-ceding the luncheon. The coffee hour is our yearly round up of what we as a chapter have done and what we plan to do. All are welcome.
