“Just Say Love“: April 16, 2013 @6:30pm-8:00pm in Hyde 120
Is physical attraction the reason two people become a pair or is the bond something more.. something spiritual? Not only does it dare to say its name, this film has the audacity to claim that love in a higher form is the only lasting love of all, and that we can find our bliss through a simple mantra, Just Say Love. The story of Guy, a student of Plato, and Doug, a construction worker looking for more than a stroll in the park to blow off some energy is a stand0alone film in the male love genre. From their first fiery encounter to their discovery of the sublime, LOVE is a how-to manual for joy and fulfillment, challenging audiences to consider a new paradigm for personal relationships in the 21st century. Panel to follow. Presented by S.A.G.E. Center and PSU Pride.
