Keene State selected to screen Oscar-worthy films

Keene State College (Keene, NH) film professor Peter Condon recently received a call from the International Documentary Association (IDA). In order for documentary films to qualify for an Oscar from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, they have to be shown in at least 14 states for three consecutive days. The IDA asked if Keene State would be interested in being the New Hampshire screening site? Of course they would!

Starting November 2, six documentary films by distinguished filmmakers on their way to fame, fortune, and that golden Oscar will be shown in KSC's Putnam Theatre.

  • November 2-4: Nanking
  • November 3-5: The Price of Sugar
  • November 6-8: Chops and Larry Flynt: The Right to Be Left Alone
  • November 9-11: The Protagonist and A Promise to the Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman
