Sociology Film Series Monday April 27th, 7pm UC 1161
The Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Criminal Justice will be hosting a special series screening of two films on Sexual Assault on college campuses in conjunction with Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Free and open to the public. Take Red Blooded Men is a documentary that covers multiple aspects of college life through a male's perspective. Through various interviews, from Northern Illinois University to the University of Iowa, and other schools across the country, we hope to enlighten audiences about notions of masculinity and femininity and create awareness about the increasing trend of sexual assault on campuses across America. In Motion, after a sexual assault, a college aged woman is faced with difficult decisions regarding her health and her future. This short narrative film engages with the question of consent and the quick response of friends who, perhaps unintentionally, blame the victim.
Hosted by Professors Lorna Alvarez-Rivera, Tom Hochschild, and Anne Price of the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice. For screening locations and updates, please visit https://www.facebook.com/ValdostaStateUniversitySocialIssuesInFilmSeries
