EventKeeper : Tell a Friend
Behind the Scenes: A Movie Club

Monday April 12, 2021
1:00 PM until 2:00 PM


Virtual Meetup - Second and Fourth Mondays of the Month - 1:00 PM

 
More than entertaining stories to be viewed from a sofa and then benignly forgotten, cinema is an art form rich in expression and worthy of our time and attention.
 
Join Brandon for a fun discussion of a variety of films from John Wayne to Shirley Temple as we look "behind the scenes" to unpack each selection's historical significance, stylistic choices, and meanings.
 
You may laugh, you may cry, you may even raise an eyebrow and wonder "What was that?", but you'll certainly be affected. They don't call 'em moving pictures for nothing!
 
 
This week's selections: The Imposter (2012) and Capturing the Friedmans (2003)
 
The Imposter: Filmmaker Bart Layton chronicles the tale of Frederic Bourdin, a con artist who seemingly tricked a Texas family into believing he was a relative who disappeared years earlier.  (Rotten Tomatoes) 
 
Capturing the Friedmans: While preparing a documentary about children's birthday party entertainers, filmmaker Andrew Jarecki learned that one of his subjects, professional clown David Friedman, was the son and brother of two men who had been convicted of child sexual abuse in a high-profile 1980s criminal trial. Using home videos made by the Friedman family before and during the trial, as well as new interviews, Jarecki explores the conflicting stories of the accused, the alleged victims and the investigators. (Rotten Tomatoes)
