Free virtual community movie club begins Nov. 1
Louisiana Tech’s Office of Inclusion Initiatives and Student Success is launching a Virtual Community Movie Club, free to all University community members, Nov. 1.
The group will discuss a “movie that matters” highlighting social issues every month. Discussions will take place through a private online forum so all can participate wherever and whenever convenient.
Joining the group is free, and all movie selections will be available to stream online via Netflix or Amazon Prime. Or the movies can be checked out of a library or rented.
The group will watch a range of movies including box office hits, Oscar winners, independent films, and documentaries.
The first movie club discussion begins Nov. 1 and will feature “Indian Horse,” now available on Netflix. The 2017 Canadian drama film adaptation of the 2012 novel by author Richard Wagamese centers on Saul Indian Horse, a Canadian boy who survives Canada’s Indian residential school system to become a star ice hockey player.
The Movie Club will be managed by PBC Guru, which manages book and movie clubs for companies and colleges. The moderator will pose questions to the club, share relevant articles, and facilitate conversations about topics in the movie. Members will be encouraged to post and share as well. This format allows for ongoing conversation and makes it easy for members to connect with each other through the forum.
