Film Showing: "Frankie and Alice" - Dec 2

The Women's Resource Center and the Human Services Technology department will be hosting a film showing on Tuesday, December 2 from 10:00-12:00 pm in Leslie 143.

The film, Frankie and Alice, is a 2010 psychological drama inspired by a remarkable true story of a popular black go-go dancer in the 70's with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). The film portrays Frankie's (played by Halle Berry) struggle with 2 alternate identities as well as her treatment; as she begins working with a psychiatrist who helps her reclaim her life.

Our goal is to help students, faculty, and staff gain insight regarding the struggles of clients dealing with mental health issues. Frankie and Alice explores complex issues of violence, tragedy, racism, and family dysfunction. Halle Berry worked with The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to bring awareness and support to people struggling with mental illness. Since the DVD's release on August 21, NAMI created a discussion guide for the film. We will engage the audience in a discussion at the end of the film utilizing materials from NAMI.

All students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact Olivia Sutton at 7222.  See the "Frankie and Alice" trailer on YouTube®.


First meeting of PCC's Philosophy Club - Dec 3

Time and Location: Wednesday, Dec 3, 2:00 pm, CER 102

This is a brief informational meeting only, at which time we will introduce the club's goals and try to obtain the 10 signatures required for us to move forward with paperwork (and therefore for "official recognition"). Although the Club technically is open to any student at PCC, we strongly encourage only students who have completed ENG 111 and one of the following courses to attend:

PHI 240
HUM 115
REL 110

The Club will be run much like a book club, only we will read just a handful of articles devoted to a single issue in the field (in advance of meeting, of course).

Students who register during this period have the best choice of classes. Contact your academic advisor today for help in creating your Spring 2015 schedule.
