21/22 Hop Film

Set in Tulsa and based on the 1986 DC comic of the same name, HBO's Watchmen reimagines and remixes the Watchmen universe. The series features an origin story rooted in the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, producing an alternate modern-day America in which the actor Robert Redford is president, Vietnam is the 51st state, baby squids randomly descend from the sky, and police are forced to wear masks to hide their identities from the Seventh Kavalry, a White supremacist organization. This inventive, timely and prescient series, highlighting issues of anti-Black racism, White supremacy, police violence, and social and economic justice, is the inspiration for the 2021-2022 School House Anti-Racism Experience (SHARE). Don't miss this chance to see this amazing work on the big screen! 

Free, open only to Dartmouth students, faculty and staff. Discussion follows. Doors open 30 minutes prior to start.

Presented in conjunction with 2021-2022 School House Anti-Racism Experience (SHARE).
