Braintree Reads Movie: Human Flow

In celebration of our Braintree Reads theme: learning from one another, appreciating our differences, and treating our values, beliefs, and cultures with respect, we proudly present the documentary: Human Flow

Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change, and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II. Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. With

Image result for ai weiwei human flowimages captured in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey. Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter, and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance, and adaptation; from the haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This work is a testament to the unassailable human spirit.

An additional showing of this film will take place this evening at 6:30.

24 Media Production Co., PG-13, 2 hours, 10 minutes 

Join us next week for Poverty, Inc.: Fighting Poverty is Big Business, but who Profits the Most? Make sure the help you send is helping the people who need your help.

Image result for poverty, inc

In celebration of our Braintree Reads theme: Learning from one another, appreciating our differences, and treating our values, beliefs, and cultures with respectwe proudly present the documentary: Poverty, Inc.  "Drawing on perspectives gathered from over 150 interviews shot over 4 years in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. explores the hidden side of doing good. From disaster relief to TOMs Shoes, from adoptions to agricultural subsidies, Poverty, Inc. follows the butterfly effect of our most well-intentioned efforts and pulls back the curtain on the poverty industrial complex - the multi-billion dollar market of NGOs, multilateral agencies, and for-profit aid contractors. Are we catalyzing development or are we propagating a system in which the poor stay poor while the rich get hipper?" 

Passion River Films, not rated, 94 minutes.

An additional showing of this film will be held this evening at 6:30.

Our Auditorium holds 100 People.

Brown Bag Book Club

This month's selection is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng.

Feel free to bring your hot or cold bottled or covered beverages (and lunch or a snack, if desired) and join us in the Reading Room on the Main Level to talk about the monthly selection. Hot and cold beverages and vending machine snacks are also available for purchase in the Friends' Cafe. The Brown Bag Book Club meets every month on the second Wednesday at noon.

“Ng's stunning second novel is a multilayered examination of how identities are forged and maintained, how families are formed and friendships tested, and how the notion of motherhood is far more fluid than bloodlines would suggest.”— Booklist (Starred Review)

Book club books are available at the Circulation Desk one month before the meeting date and are due back on the day of the discussion. New members are always welcome. Audio and large-print copies of the title are also available.

Movie Night!


Image result for green book movieJoin us for a showing of a Newly-Released-on-DVD movie each month. This month we are showing the Academy Award Winner for Best Picture: 

Green Book 

In 1962, Tony "Tony Lip" Vallelonga, a tough bouncer, is looking for work when his nightclub is closed for renovations. The most promising offer turns out to be the driver for the African-American classical pianist, Don Shirley for a concert tour into the Deep South states. Although hardly enthused at working for a black man, Tony accepts the job and they begin their trek armed with The Negro Motorist Green Book, a travel guide for safe travel through America's racial segregation. Together, the snobbishly erudite pianist and the crudely practical bouncer can barely get along with their clashing attitudes to life and ideals.  However, as the disparate pair witness and endure America's appalling injustices on the road, they find a newfound respect for each other's talents and start to face them together.  In doing so, they would nurture a friendship and understanding that would change both their lives.

Written by Kenneth Chisholm

Participant Media, PG-13, 2 hours & 10 minutes

The first 100 people will fit in the room.
 
Movie ratings will vary. This program is primarily intended for adult audiences.
