Each semester, IU President Michael McRobbie selects films that represent some of the masterworks of cinematic art. Explore these important films as they were intended to be viewed—on the big screen.

This series celebrates Indiana University’s newly established School of Art + Design, including the approval of a new master of architecture degree program in the school and the move of the school’s design programs into a newly renovated Kirkwood Hall. Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie has selected four highly acclaimed films highlighting the profound ability of art, architecture, and design to affect how we perceive and experience the world and explore the complexities of the creative process. Through the incorporation of surreal and often dreamlike imagery, as well as a variety of avant-garde filmmaking techniques, the films in this series explore the influence and consequence of design and beauty in our lives.
