Tuesday7:00 PMFilm screening: ‘AWOL’
The Women’s and Gender Studies Film Festival presents a screening of the drama “AWOL,” moderated by Denison professors Sheilah Restack and Jennifer Rokakis.
Joey is in search of direction in her small town. A visit to an army recruiting office appears to provide a path, but when she meets and falls in love with Rayna that path diverges in ways that neither woman anticipates. “AWOL” provides a nuanced portrait of a downwardly mobile “heartland” Caucasian USA too seldom portrayed in movies.
The film festival takes place at 7 p.m. on Tuesday evenings from March 13 to April 24, in Slayter Auditorium. The films include: “Radio Kobani” on March 13, “After Tiller” on March 27, “As I Open My Eyes” on April 3, “The Uncondemned” on April 10, “The Apology” on April 17, and “AWOL” on April 24.Open to Public: YesAdmission: FREEQuestions?: Isis Nusair, 740-587-8537Address: Slayter Hall, Auditorium, Denison University, 200 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023
