Thursday, April 16, 2009

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – A locally produced documentary film, "Symbol," will be premiered at Miller Center (library) Auditorium on the St. Cloud State University campus on Monday, April 27, at 7 p.m.

"Symbol" documentary research and production began in 2006 after public announcement of plans to remove and replace the swastika symbol disks on St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud, Minn.  The film was created by Gregory Martin, St. Cloud State associate professor of mass communications, with the help of St. Cloud State television production students and regional media professionals.

The first public screening of the film is free. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. for the half-hour film that starts at 7 p.m.  If all seats in the auditorium are filled, the documentary will be shown again at 7:45 p.m. to accommodate audience interest.  The film also will be screened in the Miller Center Auditorium on Wednesday, April 29, at noon.

It is suggested that some historic scenes and images may be too intense for children.         

"Symbol" is co-sponsored by St. Cloud State Jewish Studies and the Center for Holocaust & Genocide Education.  The Department of Mass Communications provided technical resource support.
