The 37thAnnual Harbour Winn Film Institute at Oklahoma City University
Join us for a series of films on the theme “The Power of Place.”
Place is more than just setting. Place can be nostalgic or haunting. It may be mythic or menacing. It can be as specific as a room in a house or amorphous as an entire watery landscape. Place informs our personal identities, familial, and national identities. People connect to place, or feel displaced; fight for a place, or flee it. Join us as we explore various facets of place and its power through a variety of international films.
Please note our new screenings schedule: most 1st Wednesday evenings and 3rd Sunday afternoons during the academic year, holiday break excepted.
All screenings take place in Kerr-McGee Auditorium, Meinders School of Business, NW 27th& N. McKinley, unless otherwise noted.
All screenings are free and open to the public–invite a friend!
