Film Screening: “Spin the Bottle”

Oct 17

The Fall Film Series continues with a screening of "Spin the Bottle: Sex, Lies & Alcohol," a film from the Media Education Foundation.

Join us for a screening of "Spin the Bottle: Sex, Lies & Alcohol," a film by Jackson Katz and Jean Kilbourne of the Media Education Foundation (MEF).

From the MEF website for this film:

"'Spin the Bottle' offers a critique of the role that culture plays in glamorizing excessive drinking and high-risk behaviors.  While exploring the college party scene, it shows the difficulties students have in navigating a cultural environment saturated with messages about gender and alcohol. Interviews with campus health professionals provide a clear picture of how drinking impacts student health and academic performance, but it is the students' own experiences and reflections that tell the real story behind alcohol's alluring public image.

'Spin the Bottle' concludes with concrete strategies for countering the ubiquitous presence of alcohol propaganda and challenges young people to make conscious decisions about their own lives."

The screening will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of the East Academic Building at Landmark College. After the 45 minute showing, Counselor Richard Mayor will lead a half-hour discussion of the film. The event is free and open to the public.
