Astrophobia: Space Horror Film Series – Sharpsburg
August 7 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree – $5.00
For as long as we have gazed at the stars, we have wondered (and worried) about what may be living and lurking on other planets. This summer, we’ll be exploring some of these fears with a 3 film series: Astrophobia.
Each film will be presented by a different PhD student from the University of Pittsburgh’s film studies department.
Our August film is Event Horizon and will be introduced by Geneveive Newman. She received her Master’s Degree in Cinema and Media Studies from the University of Southern California. Her research focuses on onto-epistemological phenomenology, horror media, and film philosophy. She has published and presented work on mental illness in horror, queer temporality, (de)colonization in horror media. Her website and podcast Open Ivory Tower focuses on public film scholarship especially as it relates to genre cinema.
Space is limited, so please reserve your seat in advance. Deluxe tickets include 2 slices of pizza (Cheese or Pepperoni) and a can of pop (Coke, Sprite, or Diet Coke) for $5.
