University Union will air the Pixar film “Soul” on Friday at 8:00 p.m. for students, faculty and staff at Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF.
The screening will take place on the Quad, and a maximum of 50 people can attend the event. There is no need to register in advance to participate, and social distancing and mask wearing will be enforced at all times.
“Soul” follows Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) as he leads a mediocre life as a college music teacher and has an accident that puts him in an afterlife realm. There, he must help the stubborn soul 22 (Tina Fey) find his way back to Earth so he can return home in time for a life-changing performance with jazz legend Dorothea Williams (Angela Bassett). Through his adventure with 22 years, Gardner realizes what is lacking in his life and how he can improve it before he dies.
The film recently won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Music, as well as the Golden Globe for Best Picture and Best Animated Feature.
In case of rain, the screening will take place on Saturday at 8 p.m. For any questions or to request accommodation, contact UU Vice President Alexa Powers at [email protected] by Wednesday.
