Voice‘s On-Campus Choices: Waltz With Bashir, discuss the decline of “Big Media”

2009_inglorious_bastards_002Glourious, Nazi ass-kicking. Look at the knife.

Waltz With Bashir

This film is one of the most extraordinary contributions to the big screen in the last decade. Directed by Ari Folman, this animated documentary film shows Folman in search of his lost memories from the 1982 Lebanon War. This antiwar meditation has a ton of redeeming qualities. You could watch it for historical purposes, or you could watch it as a personal memoir, or you could watch it for the animated escapade that it is.

Join Folman as he searches for answers that his conscious memory has not retained. You can watch Waltz With Bashir as part of the Tuesday Film Series tomorrow at 7:15 p.m. in the ICC, room 234. For more information, email cjcinfo@georgetown.edu or call (202) 687 4245.

The Decline of Big Media

Over in the new Rafik B. Hariri Building this Wednesday at 4:30 pm, the public is invited to a discussion with CBS correspondent Wyatt Andrews in an attempt to contextualize the decline of big media. Part of the Distinguished Leaders Series, this presentation, sponsored by the McDonough School of Business, will give a look at “Big Media” from within. The discussion will take place in Lohrfink Auditorium. Questions can be addressed to Chris Kormis at cmk68@georgetown.edu.

Caroilne, or Change

Had you missed the Mask and Bauble production of Caroline, or Change this past weekend, you still have a few opportunities to check out this work by Tony Kushner. In running from November 18th through the 21st (at 8:00 p.m. each night), with tickets for students costing $7 during the week and $10 on Friday and Saturday, this production is definitely worth checking out.

The New York Times deemed the show–clash between wealth and the power of change–“extraordinary.” The play has a running time of two and a half hours with a ten minute intermission; a great break during the week and a great start to a weekend night.

Inglourious Basterds

The latest GPB film. You know the drill: free movie in the ICC Auditorium. Inglourious Basterds. Friday. Saturday. Sunday. 9:30 PM or 11:59 PM. Brad Pitt kicks some Nazi ass.

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

GPB and What’s After Dark are taking 135 students for an exclusive tour of the famous downtown DC wax museum this Saturday from 9:15 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Tickets are only $5 and include transportation along with an exclusive, scavenger hunt and tour.

Tickets will be on sale in Red Square throughout the week (or in Leavey Lobby if weather isn’t looking too good). Don’t miss your chance to see a late night wax museum that doesn’t involve Paris Hilton’s acting.
