Behind the Scenes: A Movie ClubMonday May 10, 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 selection: Days of Heaven (1978)
A screen poem about life in America at the turn of the century. A story of love and murder told through the voice of a child and expressive images of nature in 1916. A steelworker flees Chicago after a fight with his boss; he takes his little sister and girlfriend with him on a trainhopping adventure that changes their lives forever. (Rotten Tomatoes)
