"Ten years ago, Agamemnon, King of Mycenae and leader of the Greek army sacrificed his own daughter to appease the gods and to help the war effort. Now, victorious after the ten long and bloody years of the Trojan War, he returns home to his kingdom and to his wife, Clytemnestra. His glorious homecoming is the spark that ignites a cycle of vengeance that threatens to consume and destroy his entire family." -Theater Kapow

Prof. Dalton's Recorded message shown before the Film Discussion Series showing of Inglorious Basterds.

Quentin Tarantino’s“Inglorious Basterds”
What is the line between vengeance and justice? Or, the difference between righteous anger and wrath? Is there some catharsis to be had in the spectacle of public accountability and restitution? Or, should we feel ashamed for the illicit pleasure we take in the punishment of ostensibly evil deeds? Moreover, what is the purpose of such acts, is it truly to quell public outrage? Or, is its purpose intended to dissuade future injustices by inspiring terror? And, if it is the latter, what distinguishes such capital punishments from terrorism? And, perhaps most importantly, why is the word Basterds spelled with the letter e in the title of this film? Join us on September 15th to find out as we explore these questions and others with a screening and discussion of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. Nominated for the Palm d’Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival as well as eight different Academy Awards, Inglorious Baterds tells the story of a fictional group of Jewish soldiers deployed behind enemy lines in Nazi occupied France to terrorize the enemy. Starring Brad Pit as Lt. Aldo Raine and Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as Col. Hans Landa, this film grabs the audience from its first tension filled moments and makes them, like the citizens of WWII Europe themselves, complicit in all of the violence that follows. So join us for our inaugural screening in the Florida Southern College Film Series. (Drew Dalton)
