  Dr. Strangelove & The Apocalypse - Film screening and discussion  
(Arts)

Join us for a free film screening of "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb," followed by a discussion to celebrate the work of Stephen Prince.

Prince's last book, "Apocalypse Cinema," covers pivotal films from the silent era to the present day, including "Metropolis," "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," "Dr. Strangelove," "Contagion," and "Avengers: Endgame." Prince explores how these dark visions are rooted in religious and prophetic traditions, and he considers how our love for apocalypse cinema is tied to fundamental existential questions and anxieties that never go out of fashion. Stephen Prince (1955 - 2020) was a professor of cinema at Virginia Tech, where he taught for 32 years.

The discussion will be led by Department of Religion and Culture faculty members Shaily Patel, Brian Britt, and Matthew Gabriele.

Directed by Stanley Kubrick; 1 hr 35 minutes run time.
