Second Sunday Culture Films 2020-2021 season will be it's 10th year. We are again working with the annual topic of the Wolf Humanities Center, this academic year, it is Choice.

The SSCF theme is Syncretism.

We will be showcasing films that express the concept of an active selection of cultural elements, the choosing and adaptation of what is desired and the rejection of the remainder.

Please keep your eyes on this page and plan to join us beginning October 2020 for our first screening. Our wishes are for you are to be healthy, be well and thrive.
