UNM-LA Winds Up Film Series With Dr. Strangelove

UNM-LA News:

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) will feature Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Bomb, Nov. 14, as the final installment in the Composition Cinema I: A Film and Lecture Series.

The host for Dr. Strangelove will be UNM-LA Associate Professor, Mickey Marsee, and the discussion will center around her course theme of the mad-scientist in fiction and film.

Dr. Strangelove is Stanley Kubrick’s black satire about the nuclear apocalypse scare of the 1950s and 60s. Starring Peter Sellers, the film is loosely based on Red Alert, Peter George’s Cold War thriller novel. 

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 Composition Cinema II series will start up again at the beginning of the spring semester.
