Auteur Film Series Screens "Precious"

January 27, 2015 – Collin College's Auteur Film Series will screen "Precious" at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 10 at the Angelika Film Center, The Shops at Legacy, 7205 Bishop Rd. in Plano as part of its 2014-2015 "Education and Other Dangerous Things" theme.

Dr. Carolyn Perry, Auteur Film Series director, said the series on education deals with the important and timely issues of class and ethnic and cultural differences as they affect critical moments in the learning experiences of young people.

"It's my hope that these films and the discussions that follow will open up conversations about the powerful connections between a great educational system and a better society for everyone," Perry said.

The screening is free and open to the public. Doors open 30 minutes before the film begins, and seating is limited. Some material may not be suitable for all audiences.

"Precious" is presented in conjunction with The Dignity Initiative and African American History Month and will be followed by a panel discussion led by Collin College faculty and staff.
