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. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

UBU ROI by Alfred Jarry

More than a century before the Occupy Movement, this young playwright stood up for the 99% with a satirical attack that is at once scatological, crude, funny, and provocative. Championed as the first Absurdist drama.  Directed by Larry Biederman

GALLERY TALK:  Monday, October 29  10am

This is a group exhibition featuring artists whose work depicts visions of future dystopias based on a turbulent present.  Desert wastelands, faux fallen satellites, devises designed to ensure your survival and a world seemingly run by giant computer servers; the artists in this show offer a prescient window into a world that not only may be, but in some places, already exists. 

Artists include Lisa Adams, Libby Clarke, Daniel Dove, Trygve Faste, Sean Higgins, Kelly McLane,  Thomas Muller and Klutch Stanaway.

Additional events including lectures and artists visits in conjunction for this exhibition can be found at www.csun.edu/artgalleries.

A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut

Bed and Board (Domicile conjugal)  (1970, 100 mins.)

Love on the Run (L'amour en fuite)  (1979, 94 mins.) 

A double feature of the fourth and fifth installment in Truffaut's chronicle of the ardent, anachronistic Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Leaud). Lightly comic, with a touch of the burlesque, Bed and Board is a bittersweet look at the travails of young married life and the fine line between adolescence and adulthood. In Love on the Run, we find Doinel, now in his thirties, convivially concluding his marriage, enjoying moderate success as a novelist, and clinging to his romantic fantasies. A pair of Truffaut gems.
