Few things capture the excitement of the imagination better than film. So many of the questions, concerns, and hopes that the Humanities collectively investigate are represented in that medium, so we sought out and established a partnership with the local independent film house – the Moxie. Working with the Moxie, we have chosen a blend of classic and contemporary films that highlight deep and enduring humanistic questions and themes. As a result of the partnership we produce the Humanities & Arts Film Series, directed by Dr. Kevin Henderson. Each film is followed by a discussion with the audience; discussions are led by Drury faculty members who research and teach in an area related to the selected film. The screenings and conversations bring together members of the Springfield community to think, and talk about ideas important to the experience of being human, on screen and off.
