Film Screening Featuring Living Together, November 13

Date: 11/01/2011
Public History Graduates (PHiG) is proud to present "Lens on the Community," a series of free public programs presenting films from the Center for the Moving Image (CMI) held in the Tom T. Taylor collection at the Portland State University Library. Historically significant in their own right, these films document and interpret the history of the many distinct communities that constitute the greater Portland metropolitan area today. After the great success of our inaugural event, we want to let you know about our next venture. Our second program starts at 2pm on November 13th at 5th Avenue Cinema where PHiG will present the CMI film Living Together (1972). This documentary film, featuring concluding remarks by famed cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead, chronicles four different experiments in urban communal living and their critiques of the consumerist post-World War II model of the American family. Guest speakers Heather Burmeister (PHiG member) and Professor Ann Mussey (Portland State University) will offer insights into the historical context of the film and its subject. What: Lens on the Community: Living Together When: Sunday, November 13, 2011, at 2pm Where: 5th Ave Cinema, 510 SW Hall Street (between 5th and 6th) Cost: Free We hope you'll come support this program, which not only aims to bring interesting history to the public, but also underscores the importance of CMI to the greater Portland community. "Lens on the Community" is made possible by a generous grant from the Multnomah County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust, and presented with the cooperation of Portland State University Library's Special Collections.
