The Other Guys movie posterFriday, December 17th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Cinema Club Presents: The White Ribbon

Monday, December 13th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

A village in Protestant northern Germany. 1913-1914. On the eve of World War I. The story of the children and teenagers of a choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers. Strange accidents occur and gradually take on the character of a punishment ritual. Who is behind it all? The village schoolteacher observes, investigates and little by little discovers the incredible truth. Are we being asked to consider whether these events heralded something that would explode years later with the rise of Nazi Germany? Did these events contain the germs of the tragedies that followed? Rated R.

Discussion to follow movie.
