Attention: film and news buffs
October 22, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Journalism Film Discussion Series resumes with a free showing of “All the President’s Men” at the Latchis Theater on Sunday, October 22, at 4pm.
What started as a “third-rate burglary” ended with the resignation of a president of the United States.
The festival will continue with a look at the darker side of journalism with Kirk Douglas’s gripping 1951 film “Ace in the Hole,” showing on November 19th; 1987’s caustic look inside broadcast media, “Broadcast News,” will be shown on January 7th; and the 2015 Academy Award for Best Picture winner “Spotlight,” which tells the story of how the investigative journalists of the Boston Globe exposed a massive scandal of child molestation inside the Catholic Church, will be shown on February 25. All the films are being shown at 4pm, and all will be followed by panel discussions.
The event is being produced by a coalition composed of the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library, Brooks Memorial Library, The Commons, the Brattleboro Reformer and the Latchis Theater.
