Join Spectacles: The Film Series for a special screening of My Name is Khan, with post-film discussion led by Karam Elahi and Mohammad Sajjad.  Directed by Karan Johar, My Name is Khan tells the story of Rizwan Khan, a Muslim Indian man with Asperger's Syndrome who moves to the United States and marries a Hindu Indian woman. Following 9/11, he struggles with prejudice in his travels around the country.

Once a month, Spectacles invites religious studies, cultural studies, and film studies enthusiasts to join together and watch a movie with religious themes. Afterwards, religious studies majors will lead an open discussion about the movie. And of course, there will be snacks!
