Free Movie Nights by Cinema Politica

Check this out, a student in one of my classes just told me about, Cinema Politica at UBC. Every Wednesday they show a movie at the Norm Theatre in the SUB. It’s free for all you UBC-ers.

Cinema Politica at UBC is a weekly series showcasing movies that harness the power of film to engage issues relating to the environment, globalization, gender and sexuality, indigenous rights, global health, and student power.

The last show was a documentary about the Downtown East Side called, “Fix: Story of An Addicted City“. The next film is called “Forest for the Trees“, a documentary about activism, environmentalism, and civil rights. No more Pit nights for us, Wednesdays are for Cinema Politica!

Joanne often gets really excited when she talks about Science. Luckily, she works in the Advanced Molecular Biology Laboratory, the educational arm of the Michael Smith Labs. She likes all kinds of science but has a special spot in her heart for biology, technology, and well, sports. As a scientist and educator at UBC, she hopes that she never becomes so specialized that she loses her global perspective. (When she gets around to writing an intro post, I'm sure that she'll link to it here).
