Innovation Infusion Series: Bob Christie



The WLCE is pleased to announce the next Innovation Infusion Series by Bob Christie on the topic of Pride, Leisure Time, and Social Responsibility: Shaping Activism with Affects of Joy. This event will be held on Thursday, October 22 from 5:00pm to 7:30 pm, including documentary screening from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm, followed by the film director's talk and Q&A session.

Bob Christie is a Vancouver filmmaker, activist, and scholar exploring the intersections of documentary cinema, entertainment and social justice. His 2009 feature Beyond Gay: The Politics of Pride won several festival awards and was broadcast on cable television throughout North America, Europe and South America.

Bob Christie's talk will be an investigation on the development of two dominant trends—homosocial and joy—I in conjunction with theories of affect, LGBTI documentary cinema, and leisure time as social justice activism.
