Fast Times at Ridgemont High Still
CAL Film Series
The 2019 Spring CAL Film Series
Youth in the Movies: Troubled Youth!
NAU’s College of Arts and Letters Film Series, which is co-sponsored by the Cline Library and the School of Communication, promotes understanding and appreciation of cinema through Northern Arizona University and the greater Flagstaff community.
Before each movie, a local film expert offers a short introduction to set the film in its historical, artistic, and cultural context. Each film is followed by a discussion.
The CAL film series blends well-known audience favorites along with lesser-known movies, as well as a mix of genres, artists, and decades, moving chronologically from past to present so that audiences can see the evolution of the art form.
