3 Sessions: Oct. 3, Oct. 24, Nov. 14
Where: TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Moderator: Julie Cotton
The movie-watching experience has undergone a sea change over the last few years. Even though we can still watch movies in the comfort of our homes on television and have access to them on our electronic devices—most of us still flock to theaters to have a shared viewing experience. That shared viewing experience is where RCLLA comes in.
Our new film series titled CONNECTIONS is an opportunity for students to connect to many of today’s pressing global issues via the penetrating perspectives of contemporary documentary films. Students can also engage in thoughtful post-film discussions, and forge deeper learning and social connections with one another. As the series name implies, the themes for the films will showcase the CONNECTIONS humans have with one another, with our physical world, and with other species that share our planet.
The film series is scheduled for the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms. Each term we will feature all three themes in the films we’ll view together. You may register for the entire series (nine films) or you may register for individual films. The film titles will be posted on the RCLLA website (www.rclla.org) one week before the start of each term.
Fall series: $33 member; $36 non-member. NOTE: If seats are available, single tickets will be sold the day of screening.
Individual films: $11 member; $12 non-member. Attendance limited to 50.
Entire nine-film series: $89 member; $99 non-member
FILM SERIES DATES
