We will be sharing an animated short and two short documentary films on January 25 (one week later, due to weather):
Catnap (Animation, 7 min.):
A cat struggles to deal with the loss of her tail, and finds self acceptance along the way.
The Foursome (30 min., Iowa Film)
Iowa’s Waukon Golf Club is so small that a round of 18 means playing the 9 hole course twice. But the Iowa course created something Augusta and Pebble Beach never could – a friendship that has lasted well beyond 18 holes. This short documentary follows a lively foursome as they play their fiftieth outing at the Waukon Men’s Invitational.
Birth of the Cy-Hawk Trophy (40 min., Iowa Film)
In 1977, Iowa and Iowa State renewed their college football rivalry after a 43-year hiatus. A group of ordinary guys – bowling buddies – decided their ought to be a trophy for the game. They pitched in their own money, designed and built a trophy they dubbed “the Cy-Hawk trophy.” Then began a long journey to get anyone to take them seriously, which would eventually lead to the Iowa Governor’s office. The trophy became an icon of the series, and even after 30 years, when it was replaced by a corporate-sponsored trophy, the original Cy-Hawk trophy remains a popular reminder of the power of a group of ordinary fans.
The film screening will be followed by Q and A with filmmaker Ben Godar.
