An Evening with Morgan Spurlock — Sunday, Oct. 16 @ 5:30 pm

by Angela Jones, Marshall Artists Series

 The Marshall Artists Series is celebrating its 75th anniversary with a bang throughout its entire season! Next up on the schedule is Oscar-nominated filmmaker and West Virginia native, Morgan Spurlock.

Spurlock visits Huntington's historic Keith Albee Performing Arts Center on Sunday, Oct. 16 to screen his latest Sundance Film Festival hit, "Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold." The evening begins with the screening at 5:30 pm, followed by a post-film discussion. Spurlock uses humor and persistence as he dives into the hidden but influential world of brand marketing on his quest to make a completely sponsored film about sponsorship. Spurlock was nominated for an Oscar for his documentary "Super Size Me," which he followed up with "30 Days," a documentary-style reality TV series for the FX Network. Admission is $35.
