    Contact: Theresa Conley   860-434-2272   programreg@lymepl.org
   

The popular music of the Second World War was influenced by many different cultural traditions.  Tin Pan Alley, Vaudeville, Swing, Country, Jazz, Blues and Big Band music were blending in a diverse and dynamic way to form the soundtrack of the period. "Songs of WWII" is a program that combines some of the most entertaining and popular songs of the 1940s (Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree, Road to Victory) along with background information on the War and the music that it inspired. Presented by Catfeather Art & Music.

Sunday December 3, 2017
   2:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Sunday Movie Club  
    Contact: Theresa Conley   860-434-2272   programreg@lymepl.org
   

Back for its second season, mark your calendars to travel with us--through the magic of movies--to Europe, Australia, China, Mexico, India....  All without leaving town.  On two Sundays in November, December, January and February we will be showing a feature length movie at the Library at 2 o’clock.   A wonderful opportunity to escape for a couple of hours and share a movie with friends and neighbors.  After each movie there will be time to socialize and discuss the film.  There is no charge for the event.   Feel free to bring your own (non-alcoholic) refreshments.

The films are scheduled as follows:

December 3, KING OF MASKS, KING OF MASKS:  Director:  Wu Tianming   Writer:  Wei Minglung, 101 minutes - Sichuan, China.  1930.  An old curmudgeon in search of an heir; a young child in search of a father.  The compelling simplicity and beauty of this film packs surprising emotional power.  Wang, the old man, is a performer who plies his craft from village to village along a river.  Although his act—the rapid changing of silk masks—is as humble as he, Wang has earned a certain fame and the respect of far more powerful artists.  But he has no son to carry on the tradition.  Enter the child, whom he buys at a black market and begins to train—only to discover that she is a girl, and thus not eligible to inherit.  This poignant story digs deeply into the nature of hope, poverty, loneliness and art—and is sure to take hold of your heart.

The films are scheduled as follows:

December 17, WATER, Writer and Director:  Deepa Mehta   115 minutes

India.  1938.  An 8 year-old, sold as a child-bride by her impoverished parents, is suddenly widowed.  The Hindu practice of suttee—wherein a widow hurls herself onto the funeral pyre of her late husband—has been outlawed.  Chuyia, the young girl, is consigned to an ashram, where widows who aren’t married off to their brothers-in-law, live out their lives in a kind of suspended animation.  Deepa Mehta’s exquisite film “Water” follows the girl as she makes a life for herself in the ashram and finds her way to liberation from its confines.  It also explores the traditions of an Indian society on the brink of independence.  Released in 2005, this lyrical movie was nominated for an Oscar as Best Foreign Film.
