Free Film Series: Scoring the Screen
The Laurier free film series presents "Scoring the Screen." This week's film is The Fly (Cronenberg 1986) and is playing in BA201 at 7pm on Friday, October 2.
PhD candidate Katherine Quanz presents The Fly (USA 1986, David Cronenberg). In David Cronenberg's remake of the 1958 science fiction film of the same name, the teleportation experiments of a brilliant scientist fuse his DNA with that of a housefly with horrific results. PhD candidate Katherine Quanz will discuss the methods that Canadian composer Howard Shore used in the creation of the score, as well as Cronenberg and Shore's long-standing collaboration.
The series is presented by Laurier's Department of English and Film Studies, in partnership with the WLU Film Society, and the Dean of Arts Office. Each screening includes an informative introduction by a Laurier faculty member, student or special guest.
