This summer, the Peabody Awards Archive will host a Friday brown bag screening series. All screenings will be from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. in Room 268 of the Russell Special Collections Building. Bring your lunch and enjoy the fun.
Just as the Peabody Awards have one criterion (Excellence), so too does the screening series: Things the Peabody Awards Collection Archivist wants to watch.
Each month will be organized loosely around a theme. The theme for June is “Scary Stuff.”
June 7: “Immortal” – This is the premiere episode of a vampire/werewolf drama from the Philippines’ GMA Network from 2010. “Two individuals, Mateo and Lia, find themselves drawn to each other, unsuspecting that as they grow closer together, they are awakening the powers that are lying dormant in both of them – the same powers that will inevitably tear them apart.”
June 14: “A Night at the Movies: The Horrors Of Stephen King” – This 2011 special from TCM is a fun and insightful look into what makes a good horror movie, what makes viewers want to watch horror, and how the genre and movie making has changed over the years.”
June 21: “Deep Ocean” – From the 2007 Peabody Award-winning series “Planet Earth,” this episode scans the ocean’s vast surface and trolls its depths, revealing daytime hunters and night feeders…
June 28: “Under Our Skin: A Health Care Nightmare” – A gripping tale of microbes, medicine and money, “Under Our Skin” exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most controversial and fastest growing epidemics of our time.
Bring your lunch and join us next Friday!
Free and open to all.
