For Immediate Release:  Oct. 10, 2016

Co-executive producers Alfredo Mercuri, videographer and film editor, and Jason Genovese, chair of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s mass communications department, will discuss the successes and challenges of producing the film, “Curry: God. Family. Football.” during BU’s second Liberal Arts Symposium. The talk and free film screening will take place on Friday, Oct. 14, from 9 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. in McCormick Center for Human Services, room 2303.

The two-day Liberal Arts Symposium on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 13 and 14, will offer sessions on choosing a career or major, leadership skills, personal finances, study abroad, interpersonal communication and community engagement. Students, faculty and alumni will lead the sessions.

“Curry: God. Family. Football.” follows the life of the late George Curry, who was the winningest high school football coach in Pennsylvania with 455 victories in 46 seasons. A three-sport athlete in his youth, Curry led the Berwick High School Bulldogs to victory for decades. His “quarterback commandments,” a fundamentals checklist, were passed down from Josh McDaniels, the New England Patriots’ offensive coordinator, to the Patriots’ star quarterback Tom Brady.

In another session, BU students and others interested in theatre may participate in a master class and showcase with London’s Aquila Theatre on Friday, Oct. 14, from noon to 1 p.m. in Haas Center for the Arts, Mitrani Hall.
