Our March 2013 Lunch and Meeting will feature a classic film viewing! Sunday, MARCH 10 at Noon at Phillips Brooks House off Harvard Yard we'll have a joint meeting with the Humanist Community at Harvard, to have lunch and watch a film which raises classic Humanist issues. It's an opportunity to discuss values and morality with other humanists, and to share in our free buffet lunch in a genial environment.
Lunch will start at Noon and the movie presentation will start at 12:15 (eating during the film is OK but we encourage you to arrive at noon or earlier to grab your favorite items from the buffet provided).
"Il Generale Della Rovere" is a magnificant Italian movie from 1959 directed by Roberto Rosselini, with actors Vittorio de Sica and Hannes Messemer. The movie won the Lion of Venice and multiple awards at the San Francisco International Film Festival including the Golden Gate award for best actor for Hannes Messemer. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Screenplay. The movie is based on a true story in which a petty con man is coerced by the Gestapo into impersonating a partisan leader in order to expose another resistance organizer, and raises a number of important existential issues, and deals with the possibility of Humanist redemption. It will be followed by a moderated discussion.
