Post-Apocalyptic Films

End-of-days films have become increasingly popular in recent years.  Yet, despite the surge in these films over the past decade, this film genre actually has a history that spans over 100 years.  Nicholas Riccio, author of Seeking the End: Post-Apocalyptic Films 1916-2016, will discuss the historical evolution of these films.  Along the way, we will also look at how these films have become a reflection of some of the fears facing our world.  The presentation will be followed by the movie When Worlds Collide (1951, 83min).
