HUGO (dir. Martin Scorsese, 2011, 126min)

Set in Paris in 1931, Hugo follows a twelve-year old orphan living in the depths of a train station as he and a new friend explore the magical worlds of silent cinema pioneers like the Lumière brothers and Georges Méliès. As The Guardian notes, this fiction film offers us a glimpse of “cinema as a dream world, a complementary, countervailing, transformative force to the brutalizing reality we see all around us.”

The screening will be preceded by the opening of “Old and/as New: Colgate’s Fledgling Media Archaeology Collection” and a reception at 4 pm on the first and second floor atriums in Little Hall.

Join us for an evening remembering media pasts and celebrating media presents!
