Founded in 1929 with the idea of preparing women and men to excel and be leaders in the practices of film, television and interactive media, the USC School of Cinematic Arts has held true to that mission for more than 86 years by having long held the enviable position as the world's top destination for studying the cinematic arts. SCA students learn under the guidance and mentorship of faculty renowned throughout academia and entertainment, with access to facilities and equipment that rival or exceed those of today's top studios and companies. We train our students not just for the professional world as it exists today, but as it will be tomorrow. This is why SCA alumni are among the most successful leaders in their field, and why the industry looks to the USC School of Cinematic Arts first when hiring the next generation of media makers, scholars, and innovators. With more than 13,000 alumni strong, the SCA community continues to grow and thrive.

PRODIGY
May 4, 2017, 7:00 P.M.
The Ray Stark Family Theatre, SCA 108, George Lucas Building, USC School of Cinematic Arts Complex, 900 W. 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007

Prodigy is a contained, science fiction thriller with some Twilight Zone edge. The film centers around a psychologist who is called into a military compound to treat their most dangerous patient. Ushered into an interrogation cell, he is taken aback by what he finds — a young girl in a straitjacket, firmly strapped to a chair. The girl exhibits supernatural intelligence, which incites a battle of wits, pitting the psychologist against this miniature Hannibal Lecter. As their session progresses, he begins to peel back the layers of mystery, and uncovers how desperate and dangerous this situation really is...

SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL

The Ray Stark Family Theatre, SCA 108, George Lucas Building, USC School of Cinematic Arts Complex, 900 W. 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007

Somewhere Beautiful, shot with exceptional detail on 16mm and 35mm film in the Patagonian wilds of Argentina and the idyllic sun soaked locale which is Los Angeles, is an intimate and restless tale of abandonment and acceptance.
