MOVIES AS MIRRORS

Benjamin Thevenin, TMA’s Media Arts Critical Studies Area Head, along with recent BYU grad Max Johnson, recently launched their podcast Movies as Mirrors. Each week they will discuss a movie chosen by their guest that reflects their experience being a part of a marginalized community. Thevenin and Johnson’s hope is that through their conversations, we can use pop culture to learn more about each other, and about pressing social issues, so we can be better and make the world better in some small way. In the first episode, they will talk with with Media Arts Critical Studies Professor Kimball Jensen about Flower Drum Song (1961). You can check out the podcast on SpotifyApple or Google podcasts.

CONVOCATIONS

For those of you who missed the TMA April 2019 Convocations, a video of the entire ceremony can be found here. We want to wish our graduates the best, and hope you can find valuable lessons in the words they share.
