As Doug says on his website, &ldquo;Most of the subjects of my films have been underdogs... They&rsquo;ve all decided to do something different, they are all fiercely independent, and they have more in common than you might imagine.&rdquo; Meet some of these characters as we screen clips from the six feature films Doug has made so far. After the screening, Doug will talk with retired professor Tom Sanny (film studies) about these films and respond to questions from the audience.</p> Colorado College Women's Volleyball Wed, 15 Aug 2012 14:25:52 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-colorado-college-women-s-volleyball https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-colorado-college-women-s-volleyball <p><em>Sunday, October 14, 2012 11:00 AM</em></p><p>ALUMNI GAME - 11AM</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Colorado College Women's Soccer Wed, 15 Aug 2012 12:40:32 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-colorado-college-women-s-soccer https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-colorado-college-women-s-soccer <p><em>Sunday, October 14, 2012 12:00 PM</em></p> South Pole Space Physics Mon, 24 Sep 2012 10:44:16 MDT https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-south-pole-space-physics https://www.coloradocollege.edu/events/2012-10-14-south-pole-space-physics <p><em>Sunday, October 14, 2012 7:00 PM</em></p><p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong>Olin 1 -- New technology is allowing scientists to remotely study near-Earth space environment from the South Pole. &nbsp;Scott Palo, PhD,</strong><strong > </strong>Assoc.
