Event Hollywood Heads to the Polls: Movies about Campaigns, Elections, and Other Travesties (VIRTUAL)

September 15, 2020 | 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

For well over a century, we have turned to the movies as a social event, as a way to escape from reality, as a source of a good laugh or cry, and sometimes even as a way to experience new ideas or different perspectives of our world. Film lecturer Frank Mandosa brings you a closer look at an assortment of politically-themed dramas, thrillers, and comedies that reflect our ever-evolving national identity over the decades. Behind-the-scenes stories, as well as discussion of the zeitgeist of the times when they were originally released, all combine to provide you with food for thought about the society that we all take part in creating!

This event will be held on Zoom. Register online here or by calling 978-465-4428 x242. A Zoom link will be sent to the email of registered participants one day prior to the presentation.
