Screening and Discussion

Friday, February 24, 2017, 7pm

Free Admission!

A humorous portrait of one of the 20th century’s most influential philosophers. This self-tortured eccentric, who preferred detective fiction and the musicals of Carmen Miranda to Aristotle, is a fitting subject for Jarman’s irreverent imagination. A visually stunning and profoundly entertaining work about modern philosophy and the dark genius that revolutionized it. 

The film will be followed by a discussion with Richard T. Rodríguez, associate professor of Media and Cultural Studies and English at the University of California, Riverside.

This free screening is made possible by the department of Media and Cultural Studies at UC Riverside.
