Please join us for the second screening in the Documentary Film Series this Tuesday, March 21 at 17.45 in FFB 05. This week we will be presenting Adam Curtis’s remarkable documentary about the unfolding of the American dream: It Felt Like A Kiss (2009, 54 min.).
This film series is sponsored by the Department of Communications and Design; the Program in Cultures, Civilizations, and Ideas; and the Department of American Studies.
About the Series:
Perhaps no film genre approaches its subject with as much curiosity as does the documentary. Join us this spring for four documentaries of varying styles and subjects. Each screening will open with a brief introduction and an informal discussion will follow. All are welcome!
About the second film:
It Felt Like a Kiss:
It Felt Like a Kiss tells the story of America’s rise to power in the golden age of pop, and the unforeseen consequences it had on the world and in our minds. Beginning in 1959, the show spotlights the dreams and desires that America inspired during the ’60s, when the world began to embrace the country and its culture as never before. But as the film unfolds, the audience is forced to face the dark forces that were veiled by the American dream – a dream that ultimately returns to haunt us all.
