Phoenix Ivy Council Events



The Phoenix Ivy Council Events for Fall 2016

[All Penn & Wharton Club Members are also Members of The Phoenix Ivy Council] 




Does To Kill A Mockingbird Still Resonate Today?



The Phoenix Ivy Council alums and their guests are invited to a special screening where ASU film professor Joe Fortunato (Yale '89) will screen, discuss, and provide "live commentary" on the beloved film classic To Kill A Mockingbird (1962) staring Gregory Peck.  This cinematic adaptation of Harper Lee's timeless book about growing up in the racially charged Depression era South is often cited as one of the most beloved films of all time.


We will start with a social Happy Hour from 5 pm to 6 pm with a variety of cheeses to go with your wine (no host bar).  At 6 pm, Professor Fortunato will provide a brief discussion about the background and making of the film.  Then we will screen the film in FilmBar's beautiful and comfortable screening room.  Think of it as a "living room book club" for film fans!  During the film, live commentary will be provided, giving you insights into the filmmaking process and some guidance on how to "read" a film creatively.


After the film, we'll discuss what we've learned and debate if it lives up to its "classic film" reputation (and discuss what that designation means in the subjective world of creative art).

6:00 pm To Kill A Mockingbird Film & Commentary
