Note: Participants are recommended to have seen Groundhog Day in advance of the session. We will not be screening the film in its entirety before the dissection begins.

As a media educator, Malory Graham founded Reel Grrls, the film school just for girls in 2001 and has developed an array of classes in cinematography, directing, and film fundraising. She continues to create opportunities for audiences of all ages to create and appreciate the art of film. In addition, she has spent the last twenty-five years exploring "jedi philosophy" in real life as a 6th degree black belt in the Japanese martial art of aikido.

Cinema Dissection affords film lovers an exciting opportunity to dig deeper into the films that they love. Inspired by Roger Ebert's annual Cinema Interruptus in Boulder, CO, attendees will participate with a facilitator in a six-hour scene-by-scene, and sometimes shot-by-shot, deconstruction of the featured film. While the facilitator will certainly share their thoughts, anyone in the audience may call out "Stop" and either ask a question of the group or make an observation around a certain shot or moment in the film.
