Utah Film Center: FIGHT CLUB @ Salt Lake City Public Library
Oct 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Utah Film Center: FIGHT CLUB @ Salt Lake City Public Library | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming screening of Fight Club on Wednesday, October 5th at 7pm at the City Library downtown location. One of the most iconic films of the late 90s, Fight Club’s exploration of toxic masculinity and consumerism in America left some moviegoers inspired by its bravado and others outraged at its blatant displays of male violence. Please join us for the screening and stick around afterward for a post-film conversation about Fight Club’s legacy and toxic masculinity with a professor from University of Utah’s film department and KUER’s RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

Presented as part of our Through the Lens series, which for 2022 features a collaboration with the University of Utah’s Department of Film and Media Arts to present an extended exploration of what many Film Lovers regard as the “Classic Films” in cinematic history. The post-film discussion will ask the question “Why is this film a classic and who is it a classic for?”

SYNOPSIS

A depressed man (Edward Norton) suffering from insomnia meets a strange soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) and soon finds himself living in his squalid house after his perfect apartment is destroyed. The two bored men form an underground club with strict rules and fight other men who are fed up with their mundane lives. Their perfect partnership frays when Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), a fellow support group crasher, attracts Tyler’s attention.

Utah Film Center: Damn These Heels Queer Film Festival 2022 @ Regent Street Black Box at Eccles Theater
Oct 14 – Oct 16 all-day
Utah Film Center: Damn These Heels Queer Film Festival 2022 @ Regent Street Black Box at Eccles Theater |  |  |

Utah Film Center is rolling out the rainbow carpet once again for the 2022 Damn These Heels Queer Film Festival! Damn These Heels is one of our most popular events which explores LGBTQ+ issues, ideas, and art through dramatic and documentary films from around the world. And we manage to have a lot of fun along the way so save the date!

This year marks our 19th anniversary of hosting Damn These Heels Queer Film Festival which makes it the longest running LGBTQ+ film festival in the Mountain West. This festival was born out of community collaborations and has thrived because of our strong support from people like you. While the name ‘Damn These Heels’ may sound a little silly, the origins are inspired by the notion that when you walk in someone else’s shoes you come to understand their unique perspective which can ultimately foster empathy and kindness toward our fellow humans.

Public Lecture/Resa Aslan; “An American Martyr in Persia” @ Salt Lake City Public Library
Oct 19 all-day
Public Lecture/Resa Aslan; "An American Martyr in Persia" @ Salt Lake City Public Library |  |  |

We are pleased to announce the Baskerville Institute’s upcoming lecture and book signing event by acclaimed international writer Reza Aslan, October 19, 2022, 6:30 pm-7:30 pm, Salt Lake City Public Library. Reza Aslan’s new book An American Martyr in Persia: The Epic Life and Tragic Death of Howard Baskerville will be published by Norton Publishers in October 2022.

We invite you to join us for a lecture and book signing to learn how the actions of an American missionary in Iran can serve as a model of friendship between American and Iranian society today, one that reflects both nations’ common respect and vision of democracy. Although the American public knows little about Howard Baskerville, Iranians have venerated him as a martyr for over a century. Despite the Iranian regime’s anti-American rhetoric today, thousands of Iranians visit Tabriz (a northwestern city in Iran where Baskerville is buried) every year to visit the tomb of an American who gave his life for Iranian democracy.

Having written several best-selling books (God: A Human History, & Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth). Reza Aslan continues his exploration of the relationship between religion and humanity in the story of a Christian missionary from Nebraska who, during a religious mission in Iran in 1907, joined Iran’s democratic revolution, ultimately being killed and becoming a martyr. Reza Aslan’s new book also reveals how Americans and Iranians once viewed each other as nations that shared democratic values and respected individual rights. Baskerville’s sacrifice has shaped how Iranians can view America as an advocate for rights and freedom, which deems it necessary to question how seriously we take our democratic ideals abroad and why we should support those who share them.

This event is co-sponsored by Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy, Sutherland Institute, Utah Muslim Civic League, Kings’ English Bookshop, and the World trade Center-Utah.
