WHEN: 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 25
WHERE: The Catholic University of America
Edward M. Crough Center for Architectural Studies
620 Michigan Ave., N.E.
DETAILS: CUA’s School of Architecture and Planning will present the movie, “The Truman Show,” as the third offering in its Spring 2005 Film Series. With a focus on films that are relevant to architecture, the series seeks to broaden the definition of architecture by questioning the meaning of reality and our perception of an image.
Directed by Peter Weir, the 1998 film is the story of Truman Burbank, a man whose life is a fake. His home is, in fact, a television studio with hidden cameras; his friends are actors in the most popular television show in the world. The movie is a commentary on the notion that the media and high-powered corporations surround people with illusions of reality.
All the films in the six-part series are free and open to the public. The remaining films are scheduled for March 11, April 1 and April 22. For more information about the series, call 202-319-5188.
SPONSOR: CUA’s School of Architecture and Planning
