Bring your drinks, your snacks, and your screens and join the Free Hype team for an online screening of ‘The City That Sold America’!

This film offers a glimpse into how Chicago’s creative community pioneered modern advertising, forever influencing culture and consumer behaviour in America. It’s the story of how a handful of people managed to sell an entire continent a vision of a dream city and a dream life. In Free Hype, we’ll be talking a lot about social marketing, and how we can apply the creativity and ingenuity of commercial techniques to bring about social and political change, so this is a great one to start some of those conversations! 

We’ll be screening using Netflix Party, so make sure you’ve downloaded the chrome extension.

You can join our discord server to get to know the committee and meet some fellow freshers before the film, or join in the discussion afterwards! We’ll be organising the film screening in the Discord chat, but if for some reason you can’t access that then just message one of our social media pages and we’ll link you up :)
