I Am Friday, September 5, 6:30 PM

“We started by asking what’s wrong with the world and ended by discovering what’s right with it.” Director Tom Shadyac travels the world with two questions: what is wrong with our world and what can we do about it. What he learns is inspirational and life changing. PSU reference and construction librarian Kim Willson-St. Clair will facilitate a discussion following the film.

Stuff Friday, November 7, 6:30 PM

The minimal role many men, including their own fathers, have played in families haunts the filmmaker and his friend, Phil. In Stuff, by Portland director Larry Johnson, a father and a father’s role in a family is viewed through the lens of the stuff he left behind. Larry Johnson will attend our screening and facilitate our conversation afterwards.
