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.

In celebration of The Media School and its move into a newly renovated Franklin Hall, this fall President McRobbie has selected three highly acclaimed international films that explore the power and influence of the media for both good and bad. The films in this series explore a range of fundamental issues that remain relevant today, including freedom of the press; the right to privacy; the presumption of innocence versus the rush to judgment; and the impact and repercussions of media coverage of war, terrorism, and political upheaval.
