History of Film presents ’Satyricon’

As the first of six films for the 2012 season, the Department of Humanities’ History on Film series is proud to present Satyricon on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 6:00 PM in SY-110.

This classic tale, written for the screen and directed by renowned and award winning director Frederico Fellini, is loosely based on the book Satyricon. The story chronicles the adventures of Encolpius, a former gladiator, his lover Giton, and friend Ascyltus as they travel around the Mediterranean during the first century A.D. Satyricon is thought to have been originally written by Gaius Petronius Arbiter and is considered to be one of the first, if not the first, novels ever written and has only survived in fragments.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

So come out, kick back and absorb a little history!
