CSU will play host tonight to Bobby Moresco, writer and producer of the Academy Award-winning movie “Crash” tonight, as he speaks to his style as a producer and director, an event planner said.

During the session, presented by the Association for Student Activity Programming and Alpha Phi Gamma sorority, Moresco will discuss the movie’s themes surrounding race and prejudice while taking questions from the audience.

“He’s a really down to earth guy,” said Stephanie Corder, a junior graphic design major who helped plan the event. “I really think it’ll be hard not to enjoy it.”

Moresco will hold a question and answer session with students in the Lory Student Center Theater at 7 p.m.

Although 20 minutes of clips from the movie will be shown at the session, Corder suggested that students watch the full movie before attending.

Moresco’s talk will be the first time ASAP has ever brought a Hollywood writer or producer to CSU since incorporating CSU Cinema: a group focused on promoting the interest in cinema on campus.

Admission is $5 for students and $7 for non-students. ASAP, which has worked to get Moresco to speak on campus since October, said that the fees will go toward hosting future events on campus.
