Filmmakers Christian Johnston and Wali Raqazi will be on campus to discuss their controversial film, “September Tapes,” on Wednesday, April 12, noon to 2 p.m., in the Bronco Student Center's Centaurus Room. The event, which includes a free screening of the film, is sponsored by Associated Students Inc. Bronco Events & Activities Team (BEAT) and International Business & Marketing professor James Swartz.
“September Tapes” is the story of an American journalist in the wake of 9-11 traveling to Afghanistan to search for Osama bin Laden. Entirely shot on location during the war, producer Raqazi plays the premiere role in a homeland that he left when his country was invaded by the USSR in 1979. Johnston directed the 2004 film, which has already been released in theaters and on DVD.
The campus community is invited to attend the screening and discussion.
This event was initiated by Swartz's IBM 491, Marketing the Movies course for entertainment business students. The class is preparing a business plan for the pay-per-view release of the film.
