Widescreen Wednesday – 'Slaughterhouse-Five'

Wednesday, March 29, 2017 - 7:00pm

<p>Based on Kurt Vonnegut&#39;s modern classic, &quot;Slaughterhouse-Five,&quot; is the story of Billy Pilgrim, a World War II veteran who has come &quot;unstuck&quot; in time. He jumps from the days of his youth, to the strange alien world of Tralfamadore, to the firebombing of Dresden near the end of the war. Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, &quot;Slaughterhouse-Five&quot; is one of the most fascinating and powerful science fiction films of the 1970s.</p>

<p>Over the course of the year, we will watch science fiction and fantasy classics from the &#39;60s, &#39;70s, and &#39;80s &ndash; films about time travel that will thrill you, make you laugh, and make you think. The Widescreen Wednesdays series features not only the screening of a complete feature film, but a lively and informative introduction to each film by a UA professor. Plus, a student from the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film &amp; Television will present one of his or her short films. Rated PG.</p>
