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
