North 122ABC

Friday May 24, 2019 - 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm

Horror is inherently the greatest genre for social commentary. It preys on our fears, our biases, and our own self-doubt. Since the beginning of film, Horror has been used to get under our skin and into our minds. But this method can also plant the seeds of social change, allowing us to see that what we fear can be overcome. Panelists will explore multiple horror films and discuss the social commentary each speaks to its respective audience. Audience participation highly encouraged.
