MovieNight

 

Locals_Movie_Night_February.png

It's time for the first movie night with The Locals of 2018. Come out, enjoy a night out with friends, a cold one from Kings, and popcorn! This time we are watching a contemporary Arkansas documentary filmed by former Conway residents: The Night the Black Bird Fell.

The sight of birds dying and falling from the sky has been an omen of dark times since at least ancient Greece. What does it mean now, in an era where human influence over the environment is hotly debated and exists alongside our instinct for visions of doom? On New Year's Eve, 2010, the town of Beebe, AR experienced this exact apocalyptic image: thousands of dead blackbirds littered the landscape. In The Night the Blackbirds Fell (2013), directors Will Scott and Brian Campbell investigate what happened to them in a compelling mix of documentary and graphic novel - a bold stylistic choice about a story that is both augur and scientific warning. 

We will have a discussion with co-director Will Scott after the screening. And as always, you can stick around for Trivia at Kings afterwards :)

Raspberry Pi Bake Off

Join The Locals and UCA's Maker Space, powered by the Conductor, for this year's Raspberry Pi Bake Off!

What’s a Raspberry Pi Bake-off?

It’s a chance to show off your project and have some fun with other makers. This event encourages makers to create a fun (and/or useful) project using a Raspberry Pi (or compatible single board computer) to display on the eve of Pi Day, March 13, 2018, at UCA's Makerspace on Donaghey, in Conway.

Judges and the crowd will pick their favorites and choose who gets the glory, the fame and prizes. If you are curious, but not up for making a project, you can just come support your favorite maker and check out what others made.
