The first screening week of the year 2007 is done. We have seen enthusiasm for both films; a fairly auspicious beginning, as one might put it. A newborn year, and a month that continues with the pattern that began in December, which is to say, an assortment, as opposed to a theme. We plan to change course in February, the details of which we will make known later. Our apologies for this late schedule.

We hope that this month the Auditorium shall have you all, or most of you, as regular patrons. As has been mentioned before, January’s schedule provides ‘tasters’ of work by various filmmakers, in the hope of sparking individual interest. (Hors d’œuvres courtesy the Film Club; main course courtesy the KMC.) It is always useful to have feedback, especially in person, with students commenting on some aspect or the other. If you see any one of us three members, please feel free to tell us what you think.
