University janitor Oscar Dantzler speaks with students alongside Producer Patrick Shen

Last week’s screenings of The Philosopher Kings and Office Space were a big hit with students, staff and guests alike.

On October 15, Duke University janitor Oscar Dantzler spoke alongside film Producer Patrick Shen about their experiences creating The Philosopher Kings.  Students had an opportunity to interact with Shen and Dantzler as they talked about their own roles in making a film about the wisdom and insights of working people.

Friday night’s screening of Office Space offered a more lighthearted opportunity to explore the issues that face white collar workers — and the actors who depict them in film.  After raffling off a few replicas of the infamous red stapler featured in the film, actors Stephen Root and Gary Cole engaged in a enlightening discussion with film goers about some of the meanings behind the movie and their own roles as actors in the film industry.
