Occasional Evenings: Back-to-School Film Screening—Heathers

BISR Central
68 Jay Street, #425
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Join us Friday, September 16th, as we kick off the new school year with a screening and discussion of Heathers, Michael Lehmann’s pitch-black satire of teen angst and macabre revenge. Heathers took a depraved swipe at the saccharine optimism of so much 1980s teen comedy, made camp what had been earnest, and introduced an entirely new, and ironic, lexicon of disaffection and disdain. BISR faculty Isabella Litke and Ajay Singh Chaudhary will sit down to discuss, among other things, what to make of such a film thirty-some years on, when suicide, homophobia, and school shootings are no longer the stuff of satire. Attendance is free (with $8 suggested donation). Beer, wine, seltzer, and snacks will be served. Please RSVP below.
