Beginning with the hit Juno on Tuesday, Sept. 2, this season’s
Missouri S&T Free Fall Film Festival will feature a variety of acclaimed
feature films and documentaries.
"We are pleased to have another batch of fine films,” says Dr. James J.
Bogan Jr., Curators’ Teaching Professor of art history and film at Missouri
S&T and director of the film series. “In addition to some famous films,
like ‘Into the Wild’ and ‘Atonement,’ we have some relatively unknown ones too.
Film maker Maureen Gosling, director of ‘Blossoms of Fire,’ will be making a
personal appearance to introduce her film. I hope students, faculty, staff and
townspeople will make use of this excellent opportunity.”
The films are free and open to the public. The movies will be shown at 7
p.m. on Tuesdays in Leach Theatre of Missouri S&T’s Castleman Hall, 10th
and Main streets in Rolla, Mo., with the exception of “Taxi to the Dark Side”
on Oct. 28, and “Across the Universe” on Nov. 4, which will be screened in Room
