THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE and THE ASSOCIATION FOR FACULTY WOMEN PRESENT:
WOMEN IN FILM, LITERATURE, AND THE ARTS DISCUSSION SERIES
Film Discussion- Wild
A Special Discussion with:
Davi Kallman, Communication and Media Scholar
The Women in Film, Literature, and the Arts Discussion Series is hosted by the Professional Development Initiative (PDI) in partnership with the Association for Faculty Women (AFW) as a means for students, faculty and staff to read a book, watch a film, or attend an exhibit or performance for pleasure, rather than what is assigned for classes. This series contributes to the promotion of a diverse and vibrant intellectual community on campus for those interested in women’s issues. It is designed to create a space for women and men to gather and talk about issues important to women through literature, film, and (visual and performing) art.
Participants: You do not have to be a graduate student or be officially affiliated with AFW to attend the meetings. All WSU students, faculty, and staff who are interested in the series are invited to participate.
All PDI events will be available to sites other than Pullman through a web link that will be emailed to you before the event. Please make sure to register on the link below and indicate at which WSU site you are located.

In Wild, director Jean-Marc Vallee (Dallas Buyers Club), Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line) and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Nick Hornby (An Education) bring bestselling author Cheryl Strayed’s extraordinary adventure to the screen. After years of reckless behavior, a heroin addiction and the destruction of her marriage, Strayed makes a rash decision. Haunted by memories of her mother Bobbi (Academy Award nominee Laura Dern) and with absolutely no experience, she sets out to hike more than a thousand miles on the Pacific Crest Trail all on her own. WILD powerfully reveals her terrors and pleasures –as she forges ahead on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
