The Fall Film Series at Augusta State will debut in a new setting when it opens Monday, September 20, with the French film, To Be and to Have, winner of the 2004 National Film Critics Award for best documentary. All films will be shown in 170 University Hall–ASU’s newest classroom building–at 7 p.m.
The film concerns a dedicated and gifted teacher whose world is a one-room schoolhouse in the French countryside. It follows teacher and students through one school year. Peter Rainer from New York Magazine wrote, “Great! One of the most emotionally gratifying movies about teaching ever made.”
The Film Series is funded by Student Activities and is a series of Monday night foreign or independent films. Stevan Clements, Cree-Walker Distinguished Professor of Communications, is the director of the film series. All screenings begin at 7 p.m. and take place in 170 University Hall. Admission is free.
