Catch the newest critically-acclaimed independent films this winter!

Kentucky, 1861. Most Americans predict that the Civil War will end by Christmas. Bracing for another winter on their struggling farm, brothers Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis Mellon (David Maloney) have become suffocatingly close. Francis' practical jokes have become more and more aggressive until he accidentally injures Henry in a drunken fight. Then, after humiliating himself in front of a daughter (Rachel Korine) of the town's preeminent family, Henry disappears in the night. Only months later does Francis learn that Henry has joined the Union army, leaving each brother to find out separately what the approaching war will bring. Not rated. 98 minutes.

eth_indian 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Garmany Music Series - Ride: A Journey through the American West     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Clouds that forever stampede the endless sky, shadows gliding over canyon walls– the West is a vast expanse of magic and mystery.  American artists from John Ford to Frederick Remington to A.B. Guthrie have used film, canvas and the printed page to convey the essence of its unique landscape and mythology.

Inspired by Marc Berger’s lifelong love affair with the American West and produced by Marc and Mike Ricciardi, RIDE captures the vastness and romance of the West while exploring its deep roots in the American psyche.  From the haunting message and beat of “Twister” and the soul-shaking challenge of taming a wild horse in “Take it on the Chin”, to the sexy, mind-blowing, middle-of-nowhere encounter of “Time Waits For No Man” and on through seven more scenic stops, RIDE takes you on a dusty tour of the Great American Frontier.

Marc Berger has performed at Austin’s South by Southwest Music Festival and The Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals and has opened shows for Bob Dylan and other national acts.

Please register.


This event is made possible by Richard P. Garmany through a grant awarded by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. The Farmington Libraries will be hosting a variety of performances throughout the year as part of the Richard P. Garmany Music Series.

Catch the newest critically-acclaimed independent films this winter!

Peelander-Z bandmates Yellow (Kengo Hioki) and Red (Kotaro Tsukada) have been best friends and business partners for fifteen years. When Red announces that he will do one final tour before quitting the band, Yellow is left dealing with emotions of shock, betrayal and abandonment - all in stark contrast to his super-positive "Crayola rock" persona. Channeling universal stories of friendship and separation, the documentary builds to an unexpectedly moving crescendo, appropriately befitting of Peelander-Z's cacophonous melody-making and unforgettable stage antics. Not rated. 82 minutes.

"Marvelous...an intoxicating mixture of audacious rock, humor, and tragedy." - Fanboy Nation

After leaving the South as a young man and finding employment at an elite hotel in Washington, D.C., Cecil Gaines (FOREST WHITAKER) gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is hired as a butler at the White House. Over the course of three decades, Cecil has a front-row seat to history and the inner workings of the Oval Office. However, his commitment to his "First Family" leads to tension at home, alienating his wife (OPRAH WINFREY) and causing conflict with his anti-establishment son. Rated PG-13. 135 minutes.

Journey back in time with folk songs of the early '60s, including the work of icons such as Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Tom Paxton, Donovan,  Richard and Mimi Fariña, and others. Ms. Doctorow will also perform some of her original compositions and discuss the songwriting process, as well as what it was like to grow up with her father, the late world-renowned author E.L. Doctorow. Get a unique perspective on a significant period in our country's musical history.

Caroline Doctorow is a chart-topping Americana folk singer songwriter, with a stirring voice that recalls Judy Collins and Sandy Denny. Her style echos the great '60s folk songwriters. In addition to eleven solo albums, she also released the first retrospective of the work of Richard and Mimi Fariña called Another Country which received critical acclaim. Ms. Doctorow tours with her folk band The Steamrollers.

Not rated. 86 minutes.

    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public works program that operated from 1933 to 1942, as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. It targeted young men and veterans in relief families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression, providing unskilled manual labor related to environmental conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands. Volunteers planted nearly 3 billion trees to help reforest America, constructed more than 800 parks nationwide, updated forest fire fighting methods, and built a network of service buildings and public roadways. In nine years, 2.5 million young men participated in restoring morale and public appreciation of the outdoors.

These young men worked in 21 Connecticut CCC camps while some traveled to Western states to do conservation projects. These interviews and hundreds of marvelous photos of camp life capture the vitality of the young men who worked so hard to improve our forests, which had been ravaged by fires, lumbering, and storms. We must not forget their labors in the woodlands and state parks that continue to be enjoyed by millions today.

Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: Their History, Memories and Legacy by Martin Podskoch of East Hampton, Conn. is the definitive book that records the CCC experience for the men who passed through its cleansing days of hard work, Army discipline, and camaraderie to help support their families during the Great Depression. Join Marty for a presentation based on his book.
