Our “Pride Month Film Series” moves online!!
You asked for it, you’ve got it! The Library has been celebrating LGBTQ+ diversity and lives through our annual “Pride Month Film Series,” now in its fourth year. Since we can’t come together to watch these films in person this year, we’re taking the series online, but with some new twists. All the films are available FREE to Morristown & Morris Township cardholders through the Library’s subscription to Kanopy, a movie streaming platform (https://mmt.kanopy.com/). We’ll also set you up with links to reviews and trailers of the movies and to print and YouTube interviews with the writers, directors, and actors, in case you want to check them out before, or after, the two movie nights. We’ll then come together, talk about what we liked – or didn’t like – about the films, and share with each other about other films, foreign or domestic, that you and we have seen.
Our film for Monday, July 13, will be “Out in the Dark,” an award-winning 2012 drama set in Israel and Palestine centered on the love affair between two men on opposite sides of the Mid-East conflict: Palestinian student Nimer and Roy, an Israeli lawyer.
