Books on Screen - Suicide Squad
Fri. 6 January 2017, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm ACDT
Are you aged 12 - 25? Do you like movies? Join us for a FREE Movie Screening in the Youth Retreat at the Campbelltown Library!
Some pre-movie pizza, popcorn, drinks and games provided.
Brought to you by the Campbelltown Youth Advisory Committee.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Campbelltown YAC would like to let you know that since creating this event some concerns have been raised regarding the film and its appropriateness to be screened by Campbelltown YAC for young people due to some themes and styling choices in the film – in particular around the character of Harley Quinn and the portrayal of her relationship with the Joker character.
In response to these concerns, YAC Members have discussed the film choice and come to the de...cision that there is value to be had in encouraging young people to think critically about media they may encounter rather than censoring the film by not screening it.
That said, YAC would like to remind attendees that the film has been rated ‘M’ by the Australian Classification Board and that the views depicted in the film are not necessarily a reflection of Campbelltown YAC’s views or values. Whilst watching the film we ask you to think critically about the content and would like to let you know that we will be hosting a 30 minute discussion after the film for interested attendees.
If you do not wish to stay for the discussion you of course do not have to, however think of it like a book group... for film buffs – we view then review!
This discussion will be facilitated by YAC and some of the topics of discussion may include:
• Characters and relationships in the film
• Your thoughts – what you liked or didn’t like
• Have you read the Comics? Does the film capture the essence of the Books well?
• Cinematic styling
If you would like to stick around for the discussion after the film, please be mindful/respectful of others also participating in the chat. We will finish up around 10:00pm.
See you on January 6, 2017!
