Primer

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

7-9PM

South Hall 2635

Anticipating the Consortium for Literature, Theory, and Culture’s upcoming conference on Time, we’ll be screening Primer, a unique and original time travel movie.  Written and directed by Shane Carruth, Primer was shot on a $7000 budget and went on to win the Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize in 2004.  When four engineers accidentally create a time machine, their experiments with time travel soon begin to unfold in unexpected ways.  By tempting its characters with the power of using present knowledge to affect the past, the film challenges our notions of time’s effects on power, truth and ethics, and involves the viewer in a puzzle of labyrinthine time-lines and temporal paradoxes.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided.  See you there!
