Bad Posture, a film by Florian Brożek (ART '09) and Malcolm Murray

Rose Auditorium, 41 Cooper Square
Free and open to the public.

 


"Flo (Florian Brożek), newly fired from his job, is spending his summer wandering Albuquerque aimlessly with his best friend Trey. Together, they spend their days and nights pursuing Trey’s illicit moneymaking schemes. But when Trey implicates Flo in grand theft auto, Flo finds it difficult to shake his feelings of remorse—and his feelings for the car’s beguiling owner, Marissa. Flo’s journey back to Marissa takes us through the interior life and layered society of a truly singular environment." -Mark Elijah Rosenberg, Rooftop Films

Director Malcolm Murray and alumnus Florian Brożek (ART '09), who wrote and stars in the film, will be present. Q&A will follow the screening.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
