Dear F&M Alums and Friends of the Program,

Occidental's Film & Media Studies faculty are sponsoring a series of class-related trips for enrolled students this month. We thought as an alum or friend of the program, you might be interested as well. Feel free to meet us out on the town!

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3: Prof Fox and some students from ArtF 241 Politics and Poetics of Documentary are headed to the Getty Museum to see the photography exhibit Engaged Observers: Documentary Photography Since the Sixties exhibition , followed by a 3 PM screening of Christian Frei's documentary War Photographer, showing as part of the Getty's Witnesses in Action Documentary Series. We'll be going through the exhibit at 1:30 and seeing the screening at 3 PM. Screening is free but reservations required, via the link above.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5: Prof de Fren and her ArtF 245 New Media and the Liberal Arts class are headed to the 7:45 PM screening of The Social Network at the Arclight Hollywood. You're going to see it anyway; meet us there and see it with a group of critical thinkers and media scholars!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6: Prof. Fox and students from his ArtF 241 Politics and Poetics of Documentary class are headed to LACMA for a screening and artist talk by Hito Steyerl, moderated by UCLA Art History Professor George Baker. Steyer's work straddles the line between fine art and documentary, asking how the circulation and changing meaning of popular imagery affects our understanding of history. The event begins at 7 PM. No reservations necessary.

Hope to see you out in Los Angeles!
