International Film Series Events for November
November 2, 2012
Reading, Pa. – The Center of the Arts at Albright College will continue presenting a variety of international films in November. All films will be shown at 7:30 p.m. in Klein Lecture Hall.
November 6: Jim Hubbard in-person with United In Anger: A History of Act Up (2012). “This unique, feature-length documentary combines startling archival footage that puts the audience on the ground with the activists and the remarkably insightful interviews from the ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) Oral History Project. It reveals how a small group of men and women of all races and classes came together to change the world and save each other’s lives.” – J. Hoberman, The Village Voice.
November 13: Meeks Cutoff (103 min., 2011) directed by Kelly Reichardt follows three settler women as they search for firewood and dutifully trudge on behind their husbands’ covered wagons. It is a “suggestively allegorical, discreetly trippy Western.” – J. Hoberman, The Village Voice.
November 27: Monsenor: The Last Journey of Oscar Romero (96 min., 2010) directed by Ana Carrigan and Juliet Webber commemorates the 30th anniversary of Oscar Romero’s death. The Rev. Robert Pelton, central to the film’s production, will introduce the film which shows “those unforgettable Masses in which the small, unprepossessing archbishop read out loud the record of the government’s atrocities while hundreds of ragged, persecuted campesinos listened in gratitude, their existence and suffering recognized at last.” – Alma Guillermoprieto, The New York Review of Books
