Freedom on the Fence Documentary Film Screening

Wednesday, March 12, 2014 - 6:30pm8:00pm
Hamilton Building - Lower Level
Free admission.

Freedom on the Fence is a 40-minute documentary about the history of Polish posters and their significance to the social, political and cultural life of Poland. The film, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Rebranded: Polish Film Posters for the American Western, examines the period from WWII through the fall of Communism, and captures the paradox of how this unique art form flourished within a Communist regime.

Andrea Marks, professor of graphic design at Oregon State University and co-director of the film, will be joined by Jack Hanley, a Boulder-based writer, lecturer and film critic, for a post-screening Q&A.

Doors open at 6 pm.

Free admission. Seating is limited and on a first-come basis.
