The LLCC Arts and Humanities Department invites the public to a free film and discussion series entitled, “Tuesday Nights at the Movies.” The next film showing will be of “Enemy” tomorrow, Nov. 13, at 6 p.m. in Menard Hall, Room 2209.
Nov. 13: “Enemy” (2013)– “Enemy,” a thriller directed by Denis Villeneuve and adapted from author José Saramago’s 2002 postmodern novel “The Double,” stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a Toronto-area college professor. He is a somber man, largely because he is stuck in a routine with work and home life, which includes a relationship with his live-in girlfriend, Mary. While watching a movie, he spots an actor in a part that looks like him. He becomes obsessed with finding out about this double. Villeneuve’s surreal film explores themes of authoritarianism and freedom as well as masculinity and marriage.
Other films in the series will include “Silence” (2016) on Feb. 12 and “Born Into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids” (2004) on March 19. Read more about these films.
The films will be hosted by Dr. Deborah Brothers, John Paul Jaramillo and Cara Swafford, professors of English; Joseph Hoff, professor of Spanish; and LLCC students.
