Arlington U.U. Movie and a Snack

CONFUCIUS

with Chow Yun-Fat

The film begins with Confucius as an old man, thinking back. Then we see him in his early 50s, being promoted from Major to Minister for Law in his home state of Lu. He is confronted with ethical issues after saving a slave-boy who was due to be buried alive with his former master who has just died. There is a lot of complex politics and war, ending with Confucius being rejected and becoming a wandering scholar. After many hardships and losses, he is invited back as an old man. We see him finally preparing the Spring and Autumn Annals, expecting that this book will determine his future influence. [Wikipedia]

As is our practice this is also a Potluck Snack, so bring whatever you like to munch and sip on.
