The University of Oklahoma film and video studies program, in partnership with the Medieval Fair, Oklahoma’s largest weekend event, is offering a Medieval Film Series featuring films that focus on the illusive world of the Middle Ages.
The free film series is open to the general public and will be held at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art 7 p.m. Wednesday and April 2, 9 and 16.
The series will begin with introductions and discussions led by Dr. Andrew Horton, Jeanne H. Smith Professor of Film and Video Studies. Each film will be presented by a special guest speaker including: Dr. Victoria Sturtevant, professor of film and video studies; Dr. James Ragan, award-winning poet, playwright and screenwriter; Dr. Misha Nedeljkovich, professor of film and video studies and Brian Hearn, Oklahoma City Museum of Art film center director.
The films selected for viewing include “The Adventures of Robin Hood,” “The Lion in Winter,” “The Seventh Seal” and “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.”
The series will cast a light on the enduring allure of the medieval period through the presentation of these incredible informational sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from scholars who will illuminate the period in a manner that will help them to better understand this era in history.
“We are very excited about assisting with these new educational opportunities and academic activities leading up to and after the Fair” said Linda Linn, fair coordinator. “There is so much interest in this period of history among the public.”
The 32nd annual Medieval Fair is scheduled April 4-6 at Reaves Park in Norman. This living history fair features over 200 art and craft booths, food concessions, games, educational exhibits, craft demonstrations and a vast array of entertainment.
