Collin Hosts Auteur Film Series


January 17, 2005 - Collin County Community College District (“Collin”) presents its annual Auteur Film Series for 2005. The next film will be the coming-of-age story "Osama," screened at 7 p.m., Monday, Jan. 31 in room C104 on the Spring Creek Campus, 2800 E. Spring Creek Parkway in Plano. Following the film, there will be a brief panel discussion between faculty and members of the audience. The film is free and open to the public.

This 2003 film, directed by Siddiq Barmak, tells the story of a 12-year-old Afghan girl living under the Taliban who must disguise herself as a boy in order to support her family. "Auteurs" are filmmakers whose creative visions have a distinct impact on their work. Barmak, 41, had been the head of Afghan Film Before the Taliban came to power. He was subsequently exiled by the Taliban. Since the U.S. invasion, he has resumed that position.
