Free Movie at Downtown Center


The public is invited to watch a free movie on Monday, Oct. 28, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center, 300 W. Second St. in Pomona. Haskell Wexler?s 1968 ?Medium Cool? is a semi-documentary investigation of image making and politics. Scripted (from a novel by Jack Couffer), directed, and shot by Oscar-winning cinematographer and political activist Wexler, ?Medium Cool? systematically questions the ideological power of images by combining documentary techniques such as "talking heads" and cinéma vérité with staged scenes between the actors. Wexler, also known for his work in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", will be available afterward to discuss his film. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. For more information, call (909) 469-0080.
