Centennial Film Series

Film Series: A Century Through Cinema "The Social Network"

Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at 7:30pm

The Social NetworkA Century Through Cinema
Webster University’s Centennial Film Series Looks at the Movies that Defined the Past 100 Years.

The series presents award-winning films that capture decades, define generations, and evoke nostalgia. Join us for The Social Network (David Fincher, 2010), a drama about the founding of social networking website Facebook and the resulting lawsuits, adapted from The Accidental Billionaires (Ben Mezrich, 2009).

The series will include at least one film to represent each decade and films will be screened in the Winifred Moore Auditorium in Webster Hall and. This is one of the last venues in the St. Louis area that can screen 35MM film prints allowing the Film Series to present archival and restored classic films in their original format.

“Films present easily accessible time capsules that offer a variety of historic perspectives – from documenting an area, as in Harold Lloyd’s ‘The Freshman, to re-creating historic events with dramatic storylines, such as the creation of Facebook in ‘The Social Network,’” said Harrison. “Films capture the fashion, design, trends and morals of a particular era, preserving them for analysis and enjoyment.”

The Webster University Film Series, housed in the School of Communications, is the Midwest’s premier hosting venue for American and foreign films. The Series is host to speakers and visiting artists who address the pertinent issues in films presented. In an effort to further integrate film with education, the Film Series provides workshops with artists and experts.
