Art in the Form of Film: Paths of Glory (1957)
June 16, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Date: Friday, June 16, 5:45-9pm
An early film by the great director Stanley Kubrick, this black & white drama set in WWI stars a young Kirk Douglas. Its plot is loosely based on a true story about three randomly chosen French soldiers who were unreasonably executed for cowardice after a near-suicidal mission failed. The film’s portrayal of what transpired was so powerful that when first released, the film was banned by the French government, which didn’t want to be reminded of its commanders’ incompetent disregard for the safety of soldiers in the trenches. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Sponsor: Chases on the Beach, Where it’s Always Sunny.
Fee: $10 includes glass of wine or bottle of water.
