Modesto Junior College

Film and Lecture


Spring 2017 Series

The Film and Lecture Series is designed to provide students and members of the community with the opportunity to engage in topics of social interest and relevance through the screening of thoughtful movies and by bringing speakers to the campus who have demonstrated knowledge on topics deemed to be of social significance.  Each film will be followed by a discussion with guest speakers or panelists. 

February 23 - Resilience

Subtitled The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, Resilience looks at studies that suggest adverse childhood experiences (such as emotional, physical, and sexual abuse) may contribute to major health problems in adulthood, but the film especially focuses on pioneers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare that it sees as inspirational models of preventative medical care.


March 2 - Beginning Again: Syrian Refugees Settle in Modesto

March 9 - 13th

Named after the 13th constitutional amendment, which abolished slavery “except as a punishment for crime,” this film examines the history of race and the criminal justice system in the United States, arguing that slavery hasn’t disappeared—it’s transformed into a system of mass incarceration.



March 16 - Marginalized in America: A Continuing Conversation

* This event will be held in the Cafeteria in the Student Center, East Campus

Guest speakers will build on issues from that film and allow for audience discussion throughout the event in small groups with trained dialogue facilitators.
