The Athena Cinema is excited to introduce a new film series examining Appalachian culture and its depictions in film. Join us for four films that present both the assets and challenges the region faces when their stories are told by those who have the power to represent it on screen.
Short introductions will provide the audience context for the film and introduce the underlying issues represented in film and other media. These screenings can serve as an introduction to the region for students and dive into complex issues that continue in the place they live even today.
This series is sponsored by the Athena Cinema, OHIO Honors Program, the Center for Campus and Community Engagement, The Appalachian Rural Health Institute and Alden Library.
Admission to each showing is free, and tickets will be available in-person one week in advance.
