The campus is invited to an advance screening of the film Altamont Now on Nov. 6, benefiting the Music Industry Studies program.
Directed by Joshua Brown, the rocksploitation mockumentary won Best Director in the 2008 Atlanta Underground Film Festival and Best Narrative in the 2008 Arizona Underground Film Festival. Set in an abandoned underground missile silo in the middle of the California desert, the film follows an indie rock legend and a group of young, angry revolutionaries who try to revive the revolution of the 1960s.
With about 120 students, the Music Industry Studies emphasizes music business, production and recording while providing a foundation in music theory, history, recording technology and performance.
The screening begins at 8 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall. Brown and the actors will hold a Q&A session after the film. Tickets are $5 and are available at www.zaptix.com or through the Music Publicity Office in Building 24, Room 142 or (909) 869-3554.
