The Village was the 2004 follow-up to M. Night Shyamalan’s critically acclaimed smash Signs. Shyamalan, often characterized as a modern day Hitchcock, wrote, produced and directed this highly anticipated film. Shyamalan’s signature foreboding and tense direction and pacing are present in The Village. The film tells the story of an isolated 19th century Pennsylvania village in which the elders have struck a pact with terrible creatures that live in the woods just beyond its borders: the creatures will stay outside the village as long the villagers do not venture into the woods. The truce is shattered when one of the young adults leaves the village in search of medical supplies. Just what is the truth about what lies beyond? Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion.
