Penn State Harrisburg

College to host screening and discussion of local artists’ film

Battle Me

Battle Me

A screening and discussion of “Battle Me,” a full-length, locally produced, independent film will be held in Penn State Harrisburg’s Oliver LaGrone Cultural Arts Center (W-132 Olmsted Building) on Wednesday, Feb. 20 starting at 4:30 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public.

Written, created, produced, and edited by the Zahir siblings of Harrisburg, Pa., “Battle Me” is a dramedy about a middle-aged gambler, who after becoming indebted to the mafia, guides a young hip-hop artist to success through underground rap battles.  Discussion after the screening will provide a forum for the audience to discuss the film’s themes of societal cohesion, male/female attitudes, and hip-hop culture. 

This event is sponsored and funded by the Penn State Harrisburg Office of Campus Life and Intercultural Affairs and the Student Activity Fee.
