An Emmanuel Current Affairs Event
Screening of the HBO documentary film, "Requiem for the Dead: American Spring 2014"
Thursday, April 21, 2016, SHACK room, 7 pm
Access to the movie is being provided by Gary Scott. Amy Kremer will moderate the discussion.
This documentary movie presents footage from Facebook, Twitter and
other social media, 911 calls and police file material, to put a human
face on some of the estimated 8,000 individuals who died as a result of
gun violence in America from March - June 2014. After the movie,
those who attend will have an opportunity for discussion. Whatever
your viewpoint on this part of American life, this movie provides
context for what we might do to reduce gun violence deaths in the United
A note of caution: This film contains content and
crime-scene images that some - especially survivors of gun violence -
may find disturbing. It should not be viewed by children under the age
of 14 without adult supervision.
April Friday Night at the Movies
Up for a grand adventure on an epic scale? Join us in the Shack on
Friday, April 22 at 6:30PM, for the exhilarating quest of "Indiana Jones
and the Last Crusade"! Thundering through three continents, Spielberg
and Lucas' witty and laconic "Last Crusade" is a joyous succession of
adrenaline-shot action cliffhangers, perfectly timed humor and spitfire
romantic chemistry, all underpinned by a brilliant musical score. More
significantly, it is also a moving and reverent exploration of faith and
belief. This time, Indy is battling Nazis to find the Holy Grail and
his missing dad-an archeology professor who's found the Grail's
location. Harrison Ford returns as the charismatically prickly Indy, and
the venerable Sir Sean Connery stars as his antagonistic but
loving father. Perfectly modulated work by Ford and Connery deliver not
only plenty of laughs but a credible father-son drama which takes the
emotionally-stunted pair to a profound destination at the end of a
heroes' journey. As always, admission and refreshments are free, and the
company is stellar!
