Hey FAMErs! We’re back on your screens with a second theme, as part of our series ‘How to Feel Better with FAME (Film, Media, Arts and Entertainment) – A Law Student’s Guide to Social Distancing’.
Last week, our recommendations reflected the confronting and abrupt dystopian feeling we found ourselves in at the beginning of this pandemic (check it out at http://www.famelsa.com if you haven’t already!). After a testing, yet reflective period of physical isolation, we’re now craving a sense of solidarity, community and connection.
Hence, our theme this week is: ‘Nice, Nice, Baby’ (cue Vanilla Ice), to serve as a gentle reminder that kindness and empathy can go a long way. Our recommendations and reflections will focus on arts and media which have re-energised or inspired our most compassionate selves during this difficult time. 💪🏼
To kick things off we invite you all to join our movie screening 🎬🌟 of ‘The Nice Guys 🔍’ on Netflix Party, tomorrow night at 8pm!
Check out the event description on our Facebook page here, click attending and invite your friends! 🍿💻
Social distancing doesn’t mean movie nights can’t still happen 🎬🌟
