[Friday, April 18, 12:00-1:00pm, British Studies (5th floor of Norlin Library)] Performance Friday! featuring clips from a collaborative film by Alex Cox of Film Studies and Chip Persons of Theatre and Dance. BILL, THE GALACTIC HERO is a feature-length science fiction comedy set in the far reaches of our galaxy. It is extremely low budget, and relatively high concept. How is a story of space warfare between two high-technology civilizations to be achieved, doing justice to its original, on a super-low budget? The hour will be shared with Nii Armah Sowah, Director of the Ubuntu African Festival. Doors open at 11:30am for free lunch. Sponsored by CHA.
