Breaking news, breaking down to screen Monday

OXFORD TOWN – For the people who tell the stories of other’s tragedies for the world to understand, we often forget that their own experiences of those events are as telling, if not more. While a journalist is trained to remain detached and record the events, in the midst of catastrophe, there are sights and experiences that alter you.
“Breaking News, Breaking Down,” is a 36-minute documentary that looks at the journalists behind the words and cameras during Hurricane Katrina and September 11. The film will play in Oxford on Monday, April 12 at 4 p.m. in the Overby Auditorium, next to Farley Hall on the Ole Miss campus.

          Spring of our Discontent

          LIES AND OTHER TRUTHS – A helpful suggestion for the contentment impaired might be no further than their own backyards (speaking of course of the backyard fire). Out in Eden, Jim Dees and his friends look on early spring as pyro-thirty. It’s amazing how gathering with friends around a fire can inspire and help solve the problems of the world … but it happens. (March 25, 2010, Page 6)

            Hot Tub Time Machine takes us back

            OXFORD TOWN – There is something to be said for a film that knows not to take itself or its story too seriously. “Hot Tub Time Machine” is one of those films and takes us back in time with fun 80s movie clichés blended with a time travel story. Thanks to the homage to 80s films, it is hard not to go back to the theater at least twice with friends to see this film, maybe break into song, and to try and catch what you may have missed the first time. (March 25, 2010, Page 15)
