Come celebrate Halloween with a screening of Nia DaCosta & Jordan Peele’s 2019 film Candyman, hosted by Dr. Laura Patterson and the Sociology Department!
We’ll have candy, raffle prizes, free food, and a short introduction to the film, examining how DaCosta & Peele expands (and in some ways counteracts) the racial commentary provided by the first Candyman film (1992, written and directed by Bernard Rose).
For those of you who are interested in horror films, this would also be a great chance to meet Dr. Patterson and consider enrolling in her upcoming Sociology of Horror Films (SOCY 4131) course for the Spring semester!
When: Wednesday, October 26th 5-7pm
Where: CHEM 140
