Nostalgia and Nintendo: The WIZARD returns


Remember The Wizard? That 80's classic movie starring Fred Savage, Christian Slater, and the Mario Brothers? Well, it's time to take another less-nostalgic, more critical view of the film, which sold as many Nintendos as it did tickets.

Now, a group of Parkies are revisiting the popular film, and they're inviting you to join them. Here's their description:

On Sunday, May 1, a group of Park Scholars will be facilitating a media literacy discussion in IC Square. Students will be invited to play Nintendo and watch the 1989 film The Wizard. A discussion will follow to reflect on issues of media
literacy (product placement, corporate-influenced and commercialized narratives, etc.). Anyone is welcome to attend what should be a fun and informal event.

Take a study break to watch The Wizard!
