The body of work of Sci-Fi filmmaker Terry Gilliam will be the focus of the third talk in the Faculty Speaker series, featuring assistant professor Anna Froula.

Froula, associate editor of ECU’s “Cinema Journal,”  the journal of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, will read excerpts from the book, “The Cinema of Terry Gilliam: It’s a Mad World,” at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 4, at Bate 1001.

If you have a yen to discuss Sci-Fi and fantasy fare with kindred film buffs, or you just want to explore a new genre with an emphasis on an “outsider” filmmaker known for delivering movies with a satirical edge, come and learn more. Good conversation and eats are free.
