The Pierce College Media Arts Department and the Film Club will use the film series dubbed “Coping Mechanisms” to examine how cinematic characters use fantasy to cope with their own traumatic or unpleasant realities.
Light refreshments will be provided and after each film a small panel will help students discuss events in the movie.
The first film “Big Fish” will be shown Monday, Oct. 29 from 1p.m. to 4p.m. followed by a panel featured Journalism Professor Jeff Favre.
