We're ramping up the REEL ACTION film series here at Champlain College.

Our second film of the fall series - REEL BAD ARABS, based on Jack Shaheen's work - is a tour de force.

Here's our e-press release - you can show this film, or others like it, in your school or community!

Happy week-end,


ACME/Champlain is pleased to announce the second in a series of fall 2007 REEL ACTION film screenings.

On Wednesday, September 12 from 12:30 to 1:30 in MIC 305/306, we'll be screening the Media Education Foundation's provocative new documentary "Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People," featuring scholar Jack Shaheen and a whole bunch of clips from popular Hollywood films.

The film lasts 45 minutes. Discussion to follow. This event is free and open to all members of the Champlain College community. Classes and students are especially invited to attend.
