Movie night attendees

On Thursday, 25 September 60 UQ Business School alumni, staff and guests enjoyed an evening of networking over drinks and canapes, before heading to the main event, a special screening of Free State of Jones at New Farm Cinemas. 

Starring Matthew McConaughey, Free State of Jones is an American war film inspired by the life of Newton Knight and his armed rebellion against the Confederacy in Jones County, Mississippi, during the American Civil War.

Although the plot of the movie is fiction, the overall story follows the history of Jones County, and many of the events portrayed are true.

The event aimed to re-engage Brisbane based School alumni and was enjoyed by all who attended.

Overall the event was a great success, it was a dynamic movie with a strong leadership message and viewers were left inspired.
