Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings.

KRZYSZTOF KIESLOWSKI RETROSPECTIVE
Polish filmmaker Krzysztof Kieslowski was a leading director of documentaries, television and feature films from the 1970s to the 1990s. The social and moral themes of contemporary times became the focus of his many significant films and his unique humanist treatment of those themes secured his place as one of the greatest of modern film directors.
Decalogue IX & X (Dekalog IX & X) (1988) -- 120 mins.
The Decalogue series concludes with Kieslowski taking on the coveting of another's wife in Decalogue IX, and the coveting of goods in Decalogue X. A powerful pair of films to close-out the series in a playful way and with a darkly comedic flourish.
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm - Kurland Lecture Hall at the Valley Performing Arts Center
