Description

HS Doc Club: Thought-provoking films and lively conversations shared over drinks.

Join the Harvard Seal Documentary Film Club for their first holiday gathering with a screening of Jingle Bell Rocks!, Mitchell Kezin's tribute to some of the most enduring holiday songs of all time. Kezin hits the road to uncover the stories behind these grooves, tracking down musicians, deejays, record execs, radio hosts, composers, critics, and collectors to explore the true meaning of the holidays. After the screening, stay for a holiday bash to rival your last office party. Pop on that ugly reindeer-emblazoned sweater, grab an eggnog, and join old and new friends as the sounds of the season wash over you.

Arrive decked out in a Christmas sweater and receive a discounted drink at $3.00!

Doc & Beer Combo: $18 (Members: $14, $12, $6), includes screening, a can of Mill Street and a large popcorn.

Co-presented by Sonic Boom.

Critical praise:

  • The Globe and Mail - 3/4 stars, “As contrived and endearing as the Christmas songs it celebrates.”
  • National Post - 3/4 stars, “Kezin's look at the b-side is entertaining.”
  • Toronto Star - “A rambling tour of Yuletide frivolity that comes from a very serious - and personal - place.”
