Communication Movie Night: Idiocracy
Coastal Carolina’s Communication Movie Night presents Mike Judge’s 2006 film, Idiocracy November 28 at 6 p.m. in Coastal Theater. This satirical science fiction comedy tells the story of two average Americans who participate in a top-secret military hibernation experiment, waking 500 years later to a dystopian society. In the future, advertising, commercialism and cultural anti-intellectualism have overtaken and dumbed down society to the point that these veritable time-travelers are the smartest people alive. Following the film, Department of Communication, Media and Culture faculty members Corinne Dalelio, Wes Fondren and Kyle Holody will lead a discussion on media effects. Free.
