NCLAC's Indie Film Series continues with "Feels Good Man"

NCLAC"s Indie Series will show "Feels Good Man" on Thursday, March 17. The screening will be shown at Louisiana Tech Wyly Auditorium, starting at 7 p.m. Following the screening is a 'Q and A' session.

Feels Good Man takes viewers on a wild journey through various corners of the internet to show how far one's creation can get away from their original intention and explores the power of symbols and iconography. Created by San Francisco-based artist Matt Furie in the early 2000s, Pepe the Frog started as a peaceful, laid-back character based on the misadventures of Furie and his post-college friends. After a bizarre series of events, the factions of the internet that heavily imprinted on Pepe went to the extreme lengths of "ironic" bigotry to keep him under their control. In the film, various artists, psychologists, lawyers, and internet culture analysts share their perspectives on this iconic cartoon frog wrenched from its original context.
