Fire & Explosions in Hollywood Films: What You Need to Know to Survive

Speaker: Professor Brad D. Elder, Doane University

When: 7:00pm February 25, 2015

Location: Love Library, Talk Zone Room 222

Description: Hollywood sensationalizes action movies with big explosions and lots of fire.  Running through a burning building with a victim over the shoulder is a great way for heroes to protect their shoulder from burns.  It’s also a great way to bake their victim faster than a microwave.  We will take a walk through fire both real and Hollywood.
