Free screening of ‘112 Weddings’ documentary Feb. 18

Northwestern State University will host a free film screening of “112 Weddings” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 18 in the Varnado Hall Ballroom. The screening is free and open to the public.

After filming weddings for two decades, documentary filmmaker Doug Block tracks down some of the couples to get their perspective on love and marriage, finding that “happily ever after” can be complicated. Juxtaposing rapturous wedding day flashbacks with remarkably candid present-day interviews, “112 Weddings” explores timeless themes of love and commitment.

New Media Professor and documentary filmmaker Melody Gilbert will introduce the film and monitor a question and answer session via Skype with Block, the director/cinematographer.

This screening is the fourth in a series of monthly documentary screenings sponsored by the department of New Media, Journalism and Communication Arts that is intended to spark discussion and create conversations.
