Film Screening: They Live – Oct. 21, 2016

The motion picture They Live will be shown on Friday, October 21st at 7pm in the Stark Hall Auditorium at Winona State University.

Directed by John Carpenter, They Live is a science fiction action movie that is also a social and political allegory. Although it was a commercial disappointment in 1988, They Live has found an enthusiastic cult audience and its iconography has become a part of popular culture and political discourse. As an allegory, They Live has proven remarkably adaptable and the film’s influence can be seen in the work of such diverse figures as artist Shepard Fairey, South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and political commentator Alex Jones.

Admission is free and open to the public.

This event is sponsored by the Winona State University English Department, Mass Communication Department, the Darrell W. Krueger Library, and Sounds of Cinema.
