Houston’s Rice University presents “Strong!”
May 14, 2012 by Sarah
Rice University’s Visual and Dramatic Arts department is renowned for its diverse and engaging shows and lectures. Students from all over the world, especially those studying the fine arts, travel to Houston to attend Rice as part of their studies in film, studio, and theater. Now, in partnership with the Houston PBS Community Cinema, which offers screenings for movies that are based on current issues in our society today, Rice Cinema will present Strong!.
Strong! is the story of Cheryl Haworth, a 300-pound US Olympic Weightlifter with the dream of become the world’s strongest woman. As she rushes through the physical challenges of injuries, however, she must also face the challenges that come with being in a world where large women struggle for acceptance. As with many film showings, poster printing, banner printing, and flyer printing are all very essential necessities as movie posters will likely be hung around the campus and within the media center days before the movie’s showcase. A banner portraying Cheryl Haworth will most likely hang across or over the doors of the media center, while flyers will be handed around featuring the schedule and a brief synopsis of the show printed on the front. This advertisement practice will help ensure that a large audience will be in attendance for the presentation.
The show is scheduled to take place on May 16th, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, at the Film Auditorium at the Rice Media Center in Rice University. Admission to the film is free of charge.
