Media and Conflict Interchange (2010)

September 27, 2010

This October, we are screening six factual and fictional films, at the Cubby Broccoli cinema in the National Media Museum.  Introduced by expert speakers, including Paul Rogers, author of ‘Why We’re Losing the War on Terror’, the Interchange will be lively and highly entertaining, but with a very serious focus.  The films range from the blockbuster District 9, through to the highly disturbing imagery of Threads, depicting the aftermath of a nuclear explosion in Sheffield.

The Age of Stupid – 13:25
Mugabe and the White African – 15:25
District 9 -17:30

Organised by CCM’s own David Robison, based in the Bradford Media School and Kazuyo Mitsuhashi, based in Peace Studies, the event is part funded by the Ecoversity project, which aims to embed principles of sustainability into the University’s activites.  The screenings and talks are free to Bradford University students and staff, others pay the normal cinema charge.

Booking is essential.  See the Media and Conflict website (www.mediaandconflict.org.uk) for details.
