Deviating from our usually scheduling, we will have not one, but two events on Wednesday evening. The first will be a talk by Susanne Sachsse, ‘Confessions of an Actress’, which will take place at 4:15pm in Gilman 17. The second will be a screening of the film ‘Juarès’ (dir. Vincent Dieutre, 2012), presented by Professor Marc Siegel, who will lead a discussion afterwards. The screening will take place at 7:00pm at the SNF Parkway theatre, 5 W North Ave. Ample time should be available to move between the two locations.
Please note that the second event is co-sponsored by the Center for Advanced Media Studies at JHU.
