I apologize for posting twice about this event, but I thought it
important to note the new concluding time and the participation of
Vinay Lal, Dept. of History, UCLA, who will both introduce the evening
of films and lead a discussion afterwards. Among Prof. Lal's books are
Empire of Knowledge: Culture and Plurality in the Global Economy (2002)
and his article on Indian documentary film was recently published in
Third Text 19.2.
I also reformatted the schedule below to make it more legible. Some
important punctuation and spacing were lost in the previous
Thank you. / Walter K. Lew
