Virtual community

Free Virtual Community Cinema Club starts November 1

Louisiana Tech’s Office of Inclusion Initiatives and Student Success is launching a Virtual Community Movie Club, free to all members of the college community, on November 1.

The group will discuss each month a ‘movie that matters’ highlighting social issues. Discussions will take place via a private online forum so that everyone can participate where and when they want.

Joining the group is free, and all movie selections will be available to stream online through Netflix or Amazon Prime. Or the movies can be checked out from a library or rented.

The group will watch a range of films, including box office hits, Oscar winners, independent films and documentaries.

The Movie Club’s first chat begins on November 1 and will feature “Indian Horse,” now available on Netflix. The 2017 Canadian film adaptation of author Richard Wagamese’s 2012 novel centers on Saul Indian Horse, a Canadian boy who survives Canada’s residential school system to become a star ice hockey player.

The Movie Club will be managed by PBC Guru, which operates book and movie clubs for businesses and colleges. The moderator will ask the club questions, share relevant articles and facilitate conversations on the topics of the film. Members will also be encouraged to post and share. This format allows for continuous conversation and allows members to easily connect through the forum.
