Alums to host screening of Plame movie tonight

Fair Game

The Creative Arts Council is holding a wildly unpublicized advance screening tonight of a new Sean Penn movie, entitled Fair Game.

The film is based on the true story of Valerie Plame, a former CIA agent who made headlines in 2003 when she was outed as a covert agent. Naomi Watts portays Plame, and Penn plays her husband Joseph Wilson.

Presenting the film are director Doug Liman ’88 (who helmed The Bourne Identity, among other blockbusters) and producer Dave Bartis ’88. These two filmmakers and frequent collaborators helped start Brown Television back in the day, and also produced FOX’s “The O.C.”

Professor of International Studies James Der Derian will also be on hand for the panel discussion and Q&A which follow the film.

The event will take place at Salomon 101 at 7 PM, and the film’s trailer can be viewed here.
