COMPLETE PROVOST'S FILM SERIES
1999–2011

In selecting the films, we have endeavored to feature a wide scope of international works, examine a few avant garde and classic films, and discuss some of the more compelling mainstream films that have provoked conversation among college students.   A thirty-minute post-film discussion follows each viewing, probing aesthetic, cultural and spiritual themes.  Asterisks denote films shown more than once in the series.
