Apocalypse, Then and Now
Filmmakers repeatedly envision apocalyptic futures to critique present trends. The series Apocalypse, Then and Now pairs two films that portray the dread of imminent catastrophe, as wide-scale infertility threatens the human race with extinction. Each of the films reimagines key issues of its own time, including reproductive rights, race relations, immigration policies, the war on terror, and the blurring boundaries among church, state, and the military. This series is sponsored by the College Arts and Humanities Institute and co-sponsored by the Department of English.
