The fall 2015 Film Series, presented by MWCC’s Student Life office, kicks off on Sept. 23 with the film, Pride. Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984. The National Union of Mindeworkers was reluctant to accept the group’s support due to the union’s public relations worries about being openly associated with a gay group, so the activists instead took their donations directly to Onllwyn, a small mining village in Wales, resulting in an alliance between the two communities.
The fall film series will continue with Admissions on Sept. 29; To Write Love on Her Arms on Oct. 7; Hunting Ground on Oct. 21; Frankenstein on Oct. 9; We Shall Remain on Nov. 4; and Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey on Nov. 25.
All films begin at 12:30 p.m. in the North Cafe and are free and open to the public.
