New RSU Film Series to Present ‘A Clockwork Orange' Jan. 29
"A Clockwork Orange" – the 1971 Stanley Kubrick film based on the Anthony Burgess novel—will be presented at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29th, at Rogers State University.
The film, which is free and open to the public, will be shown in the Will Rogers Auditorium on the RSU campus in Claremore. The screening is the first in the new RSU Fine Arts Film Series, sponsored by the RSU School of Liberal Arts.
"Our goal is to expose our students and the community to some of our most classic and thought-provoking films," said Dr. Michael McKeon, assistant professor.
A historic and controversial film, "A Clockwork Orange" probes the subjects of glamorized violence, gang mentality in modern society, issues of prison reform and submission of free will to societal pressures, McKeon said.
Dr. Frank Grabowski, RSU assistant professor of philosophy, will introduce the film and offer some remarks.
The film is rated R with scenes of explicit violence and sexual content, and is not suitable for people under the age of 18.
