'V for Vendetta' Screening at WSU

The Winona State University History Association is sponsoring a screening of V for Vendetta at 7pm on November 5, 2011 in the Somsen Auditorium on the Winona State campus.

Although I gave a mixed review to this film at the time of its release (you can find the review in the archive) , V for Vendetta has become an important motion picture. The Guy Fawkes mask worn by the hero has become an international symbol for resistance movements, popping up everywhere from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street.

Check out this video from the time of V for Vendetta's release, in which pundits debate the merits and political message of the film.
