The Social Change Film Series
Join us every month during the school year for a free film, discussion, and some thought-provoking content! The Davis Center partners with our local independent theater, Images Cinema, every month to highlight a mainstream or independent film that speaks to issues of diversity in ideology, social identity, injustice, as well as prejudice and discrimination. We aim to give students and our community the opportunity to learn about communities and cultures through film – to thereby broaden or deepen our appreciation and understanding. The Davis Center programming theme for ’17-’18 is Power to the People – deconstructing inequitable power structures, specifically in the United States.

- Tuesday, September 12th: Accidental Courtesy
