Film classes, exhibit featured at UNM-LA

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos will present the documentary “Home,” on Oct. 10, as the third feature in the Composition Cinema I: A Film and Lecture Series, which will run through Nov. 14.
The visually stunning film by French photographer and environmentalist, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, is shot almost entirely from an aerial perspective and makes a compelling case that man has neglected the mystery and miracle of life on earth and that he has plundered the planet, disturbing the delicate balance that sustains so much of the earth’s life.
Christopher Strauss, UNM-LA English Adjunct Faculty member will host the discussion surrounding the power of place and will speak to developing a better sense of the houses and towns in which man lives.
The film is free and open to the public and will be shown at 6 p.m. in the Jeannette O. Wallace Hall on the UNM-LA campus.
The final two films in the series are “Gandhi,” presented by Dora Aleksandrova on Oct. 24 and “Dr. Strangelove,” hosted by Mickey Marsee on Nov. 14.
