The Loft Cinema
The Loft Cinema is a nonprofit cinema dedicated to creating community through film, honoring the vision of filmmakers, celebrating ideas and promoting the appreciation and understanding of the art of film.
This past year, SBS began partnering with The Loft Cinema on several projects, including "Science on Screen" and the "Human Rights Film Festival." The inaugural event of “Science on Screen” was “Project Nim,” a documentary about the controversial experiment that aimed to show that a chimpanzee could learn to communicate with language if raised like a human child. The screening was followed by a panel discussion featuring linguist Andy Barss, primatologist Stacey Tecot, and philosopher Chris Maloney.
In fall 2012, Communication Professor Kate Kenski will be teaching her class, "The Struggle for the Presidency," in conjunction with a series of election movies. For $5 admission per movie, community members can watch the movies with the students, and then stay to hear Professor Kenski giver her analysis. Click here for details.
