There's Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa is a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. Faculty-led discussion to follow.

  • Bright Lights: BOSCPUG Filming MAD MAX: FURY ROAD with Michelle Pizanis AC

    9/10/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Get out to meet & mingle with fellow filmmakers in the Bright. Enjoy a great night of networking, engaging screenings & conversation: swap stories and business cards, discover talent and crew for your next project, and interact with members of Boston's Production and Post community.

    Then, join us for an industry reception featuring Refreshments + Networking next door at SALVATORE'S.

    Michelle started her career in film after 11 years as a successful stills photographer. On Mad Max: Fury Road, Michelle was the camera coordinating AC, working with Academy Award winning DP John Seale. While shooting a number of scenes in Sydney, Australia, Michelle and John used Blackmagic Cinema Cameras EF for some of the film's key scenes, including an exciting escape scene and a large, climatic action sequence involving exploding trucks and cinematic mayhem. The scenes were shot in RAW, which allowed the team to capture as much detail as possible within each shot, giving the VFX artists a huge amount of data to work with.

    We're thrilled to have Michelle with us for a special conversation on filming with Blackmagic Design Cameras on Mad Max: Fury Road, her role in working with DP John Seale on the film, and her experiences in working in the industry.

  • Emerson College Police Bike Lock Give Away

    9/11/15
    12:00 am - 5:00 pm
    Little Building
    Police Department

    The Emerson College Police Department will be giving away Bike U locks!!

    Emerson College Police has identified that the majority of bicycles that are stolen from campus are either not secured or are secured by an easily defeated chain or cable style lock. When used properly, a "U" style lock can dramatically decrease the risk of bicycle theft. Bike theft continues to be an issue on and around campus, and we need your help to deter thieves. Don't become a target. Lock up your bike with a high-quality U-lock. They are more difficult to defeat than cable locks. In the 2014 fall semester there were 5 documented thefts of bicycles from Emerson Community members.

    This week, we will be awarding multiple Kryptonite/OnGuard U-locks.

    Check out the Emerson College Police social media pages where we offer crime alerts, crime prevention tips and other safety information you should know.

    How to win:

    • Facebook/Emerson College Police Department: Leave a comment on our U-lock giveaway post describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.
    • Twitter/Emerson Police Department: Send a tweet describing why bike theft prevention is important to you.
    • The contest will run from August 31, 2015 thru September 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm. We'll select random winners from both Facebook and Twitter, and award the locks the following week. You must be a current Emerson Community member to be eligible.
    • Don't forget to register your bike with your local police department. If it's stolen and later located anywhere in the United States, you'll have a better chance of it being returned to you.

    Useful hints:

    • Lock your bike to an authorized bike rack.
    • Consider using two locks to lock both the front wheel and frame, and rear wheel and frame.
    • Keep a copy of your bikes serial number and take a picture of the bike
    • Hide your name and contact information inside the bikes frame.
    • Take your seat with you when you leave.

    This event is not open to the public.

They take part in very long processions, self- flagellation and self-mutilation, and reenact the martyrdom of Imam Hussein with their own blood and flesh. Mystic Mass documents the ceremony, and provides an exhaustive description of how the mass forms, how it reaches the highest levels of mysticism, and how it dissolves – all in 24 hours.

  • Advanced Screening of SUFFRAGETTE (Emerson Community only)

    9/30/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Seating on a first come basis. Doors open at 6:30.

    This is a drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement, women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily from the genteel educated classes, they were working women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing. Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality—their jobs, their homes, their children and their lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also heart-breaking and inspirational.

    10/06/15
    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Directed by Mary Dore, documentary, US, 92 min, 2014, DCP.

    She's Beautiful When She's Angry resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. She's Beautiful When She's Angry takes us from the founding of NOW, with ladies in hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of W.I.T.C.H. (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!). Artfully combining dramatizations, performance and archival imagery, the film recounts the stories of women who fought for their own equality, and in the process created a worldwide revolution.

    Paramount Center
    Bright Family Screening Room

    Directed by Jon J Whelan, documentary, US, 91 minutes, 2015, DCP. 

    Stink! opens with a foul smell and a pair of kids' pajamas. And a single father trying to find out what that smell could possibly be. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, which is that some products on our store shelves are not safe — by design. Entertaining, enlightening, and at times almost absurd, Stink! takes you on a madcap journey from the retailer to the laboratory, through corporate boardrooms, down back alleys, and into the halls of Congress. Follow Whelan as he clashes with political and corporate operatives all trying to protect the darkest secrets of the chemical industry. You won't like what you smell.

    A once-in-a-generation talent, Amy Winehouse was a musician that captured the world's attention. A pure jazz artist in the most authentic sense—she wrote and sung from the heart using her musical gifts to analyze her own problems. The combination of her raw honesty and supreme talent resulted in some of the most unique and adored songs of the modern era. Her huge success, however, resulted in relentless and invasive media attention which coupled with Amy's troubled relationships and precarious lifestyle saw her life tragically begin to unravel.

    Bright Family Screening Room

    Directed by Noel Marshall, narrative (drama), USA, 102 minutes, 1981, DCP.

    An unprecedented––and wholly unpredictable––action-adventure, Roar follows wildlife preservationist Hank (The Exorcist producer Noel Marshall in his sole and career-derailing turn as an actor and director), who lives harmoniously alongside a menagerie of over 100 untamed animals, including cheetahs, elephants, lions and tigers on a preservation in the African plains. When his wife and children arrive (real-life wife Tippi Hedren, The Birds, and step-daughter Melanie Griffith, Working Girl, and his sons John and Jerry Marshall) for a visit, a long-brewing battle for dominance between the lions erupts and threatens their very lives.
