The Spring 2011 Free Film Festival at Missouri University of Science and Technology includes films ranging from the controversial to the classic.
“We have a great batch of films ready to go,'” says Dr. James J. Bogan Jr., Curators’ Teaching Professor of art history and film at Missouri S&T. “I wouldn’t miss Winter’s Bone on Jan. 25, or Citizen Kane on Feb. 22.”
The festival includes several critically acclaimed films from 2010, beginning with The Social Network, the story of Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg’s founding of Facebook. The moving Winter’s Bone follows an Ozark teenager who is forced to track her drug-dealing fugitive father through a harrowing criminal network after learning he put up their home as his bail bond.
The films are free and open to the public. The movies will be shown at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays in Leach Theatre of S&T’s Castleman Hall, 10th and Main streets in Rolla, Mo., with the exception of Cell 211 on April 12, which will be screened in Room 125 Physics Building on the Missouri S&T campus.
