The ways we obtain information, and the ways we are entertained, have changed radically over the past 100 years. From the printed page to the silver screen, from the 'talking box' to the world wide web, media has undergone a series of revolutions in presentation, in ethics, and in content. What is ‘the media,’ and how is it depicted in movies? How does the constantly changing media landscape affect not only those who consume media, but also those who create it? This series will examine several fiction and documentary films that shine a light on the evolutions and circumlocutions of our slippery media culture. Harvard student Mark Zuckerberg creates the social networking website that would become known as Facebook, but is later sued by two brothers who claim he stole their idea, and the co-founder who was later squeezed out of the business. Directed by David Fincher (2010). This series takes place Tuesday evenings for the screening, analysis, and lively discussion of great films with Colorado College professors Dylan Nelson and Clay Haskell.
