Upcoming Films at the University of Miami

 

September 5 - 8 I'M SO EXCITED — A technical failure has endangered the lives of the people on board Peninsula Flight 2549. The pilots are striving, along with their colleagues in the Control Center, to find a solution. The flight attendants and the chief steward are atypical, baroque characters who, in the face of danger, try to forget their own personal problems and devote themselves body and soul to the task of making the flight as enjoyable as possible for the passengers, while they wait for a solution. Life in the clouds is as complicated as it is at ground level, and for the same reasons, which could be summarized in two: sex and death. I'm So Excited screens Thursday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, September 7 at 3:45 p.m. and Sunday, September 8 at 4:00 p.m.

September 6 - 8 DRINKING BUDDIES — Luke and Kate are co-workers at a Chicago brewery, where they spend their days drinking and flirting. They're perfect for each other, except that they're both in relationships. Luke is in the midst of marriage talks with his girlfriend of six years, Kate is playing it cool with her music producer boyfriend Chris. But you know what makes the line between "friends" and "more than friends" really blurry? Beer. From celebrated Mumblecore director Joe Swanberg comes an unconventional romantic comedy that reflects actual reality rather than fantasy. This SxSW indie-comedy is anchored by charismatic and charming performances from its stars Olivia Wilde (DEADFALL), Jake Johnson (NEW GIRL), Oscar-nominee Anna Kendrick (UP IN THE AIR), and Ron Livingston (OFFICE SPACE). Drinking Buddies screens Friday, September 6 at 6:45 p.m., Saturday, September 7 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. and Sunday, September 1 at 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

September 6 - 8 THE ACT OF KILLING — Anwar Congo and his friends have been dancing their way through musical numbers, twisting arms in film noir gangster scenes, and galloping across prairies as yodeling cowboys. Their foray into filmmaking is being celebrated in the media and debated on television, even though Anwar Congo and his friends are mass murderers. Medan, Indonesia. When the government of Indonesia was overthrown by the military in 1965, Anwar and his friends were promoted from small-time gangsters who sold movie theatre tickets on the black market to death squad leaders. They helped the army kill more than one million alleged communists, ethnic Chinese, and intellectuals in less than a year. As the executioner for the most notorious death squad in his city, Anwar himself killed hundreds of people with his own hands. The Act of Killing screens Friday, September 6 at 8:30 p.m., Saturday, September 7 at 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 8 at 7:45 p.m.

General admission is $9. Admission is $7 for seniors, University of Miami alumni, faculty, non-UM students and staff. Free for UM students. To purchase tickets online or for more information, visit www.cosfordcinema.com or call 305-284-4861.

Alumni Weekend & Homecoming 2013


COE Distinguished Speaker

Monday, September 9

Coral Gables

Corale L. BrierleyDr. Corale L. Brierley, Principal, Brierley Consultancy LLC, Member of the National Academy of Engineering, will present "Microbes and Mining: Technology for Sustainable Mine Production". Brierley will discuss Bioleachin. Bioleaching is the process of using microorganisms to extract metals from ores. Bioleaching was recognized some 60 years ago, but in the last 20 years remarkable scientific and engineering developments have significantly increased bioleaching applications. Today some 20% of the world's total mined copper production (15.7 million tonnes) and about 3.3% of the total global production (2,500 tonnes) of gold is processed using microbes. This talk will discuss bioleaching microorganisms and processes, illustrate commercial engineering applications, and explain why bioleaching is central to future mine production. Bioleaching innovations at the interfaces of disparate subject areas are key to sustainable mine production as ore grades decline, ore deposits are deeper, production costs escalate, and environmental protection is prioritized.

The presentation is scheduled for Monday, September 9, 2013 from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the McArthur Engineering Annex, Room MEA202. For more information, please call (305) 284-3391 or email lizbowen@miami.edu.
