Quote of the Week:   Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb. - Sir Winston Churchill

Image/SPU Film Festival
The Fifth Annual Image/SPU Film Festival January 20-22, 2005 - There's a hunger for truth and reality at the movies these days. A thrilling action sequence or a diverting comedy can hit the spot, but often we crave more. While "reality" television becomes increasingly staged and standardized, documentary movies are telling truths, crafting stories, and attracting audiences like never before. In short, the documentary has come into its own as an art form. This year's festival, Telling the Truth: The Art of Documentary Films, presents five films that satisfy our desire for revelation, entertainment, emotional connection, and above all, for the hard but bracing edge of truth. Over the course of the weekend, five films (Hoop Dreams, Born into Brothels, Murderball, Super Size Me, and Buena Vista Social Club) will be screened. After each film, a panel of faculty and students will lead a discussion of the film and field comments and questions from the audience. Free popcorn and other goodies will be served. Each film will be screened in Upper Gwinn at the following times: January 20, 7:00pm (Hoop Dreams); January 21, 2:00pm (Born into Brothels) & 7:00pm (Murderball); and January 22, 2:00pm (Super Size Me) & 7:00pm (Buena Vista Social Club). Go to www.imagejournal.org or call x2988 for more information. The event is sponsored by Image journal, ASSP and the SPU Office of Student Programs.

His talk is entitled: "Giussani: On the Other Side of Appearances." The respondent will be Fr. Ed White, associate pastor of St. Charles Borromeo parish in Tacoma, WA.
