First Friday Flicks - THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE

First Friday Flicks - THE ZOOKEEPER'S WIFE

Pinney Library
09/01/2017
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

"The Zookeeper's Wife tells the account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, Antonina and Jan Zabinski, who helped save hundreds of people and animals during the German invasion."
(2017|127mins)
IMDb entry: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1730768/

"Adapted from a work of nonfiction by Diane Ackerman, the plot follows Antonina Żabiński (Jessica Chastain) and her husband, Jan (Johan Heldenbergh), living an idyllic life in 1930s Warsaw, where they run the zoo. Caro and her cinematographer Andrij Parekh paint the pre-war period in bright colors, but smoke and spilled blood soon sully the pastoral scene, and that juxtaposition accounts for the movie’s most striking imagery. Eventually Antonina and Jan begin hiding and rescuing Jews, even as the Nazis commandeer their facility."
-Esther Zuckerman, avclub.com

Seating is first come, first served with space for 50 attendees. Doors open 1/2 hour before the film start time. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Pinney Library. This film is rated PG-13 by the MPAA. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.

When Chris (Daniel Kaluuya), a young African-American man, visits his white girlfriend's (Allison Williams) family estate, he becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele (Key & Peele) is equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary.

Special Film Screening - THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS

Special Film Screening - THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS

Pinney Library
09/06/2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a special film screening of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, based on the book of the same name by Rebecca Skloot.

"An African-American woman becomes an unwitting pioneer for medical breakthroughs when her cells are used to create the first immortal human cell line in the early 1950s." (2017|93mins)
IMDb entry:www.imdb.com/title/tt5686132/

"It is easy to forget, amid everything else she has achieved, that Oprah Winfrey is an Oscar-nominated actor (in 1985, for her role as Sofia in The Color Purple). In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (Sky Atlantic), an adaptation of the book of the same title by Rebecca Skloot that remained on bestseller lists for six years, she reminds us why. It is her film from beginning to end. She plays Deborah, the emotionally and physically unstable daughter of Henrietta Lacks, who suffers the torments of growing up not just motherless, but abused by family members and tortured by the knowledge that her mother was – and still is – being exploited for other peoples’ gain."
-Lucy Mangin, theguardian.com

Seating is first come, first served with space for 50 attendees. Doors open 1/2 hour before the film start time. Light refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Pinney Library. This film holds a television rating of MA.

"In 1910, a Chicago steelworker accidentally kills his supervisor, and he, his girlfriend, and his little sister flee to the Texas panhandle, where they find work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer. A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire - Terrence Malick captures it all with dreamlike authenticity, creating a timeless American idyll that is also a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor" (Criterion).

Yuyuskiki -- Anime at Hawthorne

Yuyuskiki -- Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
09/22/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Everyone knows you can learn a lot on the internet, and some of it is even true. But if you want to know what's REALLY going on and important, then there's just one place to go: the computer club!

Okay, so maybe it's not the club itself, but the three girls you're most likely to find there. And maybe they do spend more time chatting about their social lives and debating things like the virtues of ketchup versus mayonnaise than they do learning about the ins and outs of a keyboard, but whatever they're up to, it's sure to put a smile on your face.

So come learn what the mysterious YuiYukari Formula is all about and join serious Yui, hyperactive Yuzuko and lovable but not quite in touch with reality Yukari as they experience life's ups, downs, surprises, and occasionally, the internet!

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles.

Legend Lake Film Screening and Discussion with Aaron Bird Bear

Pinney Library
09/25/2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The 34 minute documentary film LEGEND LAKE: A TALKING CIRCLE recounts the saga of Legend Lake, a beautiful 5,160 acre lake development, formed by joining 9 smaller lakes in the Menominee Indian Reservation (with the same boundaries as Menominee County) in northern Wisconsin whose shore-land was subdivided and sold mostly to non-Menominee people. Legend Lake represents another chapter in the long and often contentious relationship between American Indians and non-Indians in Wisconsin. This film screened at the 2011 Wisconsin Film Festival.

After the film screening, a guided discussion will be led by Aaron Bird Bear. Aaron Bird Bear is Assistant Dean, Student Diversity Programs, School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Bird Bear (Mandan, Hidatsa, & Dine' Nations) received his Educational Leadership Policy & Analysis masters degree from UW-Madison and previously coordinated American Indian Student Academic Services, a unit supporting Native American students at UW-Madison.

This program is funded by a grant from Beyond the Page and is part of a series of programs in Dane County Libraries titled Get to Know Our Neighbors: Wisconsin's Tribal Nations and Communities.

Tsotsi Movies too Good to Miss Film Series

Hawthorne Library
09/29/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

http://tsotsi.com/
In a shantytown on the edges of Johannesburg, South Africa, nineteen year old Tsotsi (Presley Chweneyagae) has repressed any memory of his past, including his real name: "Tsotsi" simply means "thug" or "gangster" in the street language of the ghetto. Orphaned at an early age and compelled to claw his way to adulthood alone, Tsotsi has lived a life of extreme social and psychological deprivation. A feral being with scant regard for the feelings of others, he has hardened himself against any feelings of compassion.
