Hi Lani,

Thanks for your enthusiasm.  AAU has guards that check student IDs at the
entry of the buildings, but I may be able to have "guests" once things get
rolling and I know where it will be.  Feel free to send me an email in early
September and I'll see what I can do.

In terms of the syllabus, I'm still compiling the reader, film list and
details week by week.  It doesn't seem terribly important to approach it
chronologically, so I'm giving into my process to see where it takes me ;)

Best,

--
