Please note: This is a group for people in their 40s through 60s (singles & couples).
After you see a movie would you like to be able to discuss it with some like-minded people? A thought-provoking film, online lecture, or podcast will be selected every several weeks. You would watch or listen to this at some point on your own. Then we'll meet to discuss it over a drink, coffee, or something to eat! We meet on the weekends, at different times, usually at a cafe, pub, or restaurant. In discussion we try to stay focused on the film and its themes and tangents, though any relevant information that helps to clarify the movie is welcome.
The purpose of this group is to create an avenue for people to get together for intelligent discussions with a reason-based approach. (If your thinking is not along these lines, e.g. you believe in super-natural or para-normal occurrences, 'metaphysical' energy, crystal magic, 'new age' ideas, etc, you’d probably find another group more compatible.)
The group is intentionally kept small, but new members are always welcome! If you're interested, please be sure there's a recent realistic photo of yourself. And please answer these questions, which will appear when you click on the ‘join’ button:
1) Can you list a couple of films that you’ve really enjoyed?
2) Are there any podcasts or TED talks that you've found interesting?
3) Though this isn't a reading group, please let us know if you've read any non-fiction articles or books in the past three months and what they were?
This is also a father-daughter themed movie, but of a very different sort than our previous film.
It's a 2017 drama directed and written by Iram Haq, a Norwegian actress and director of Pakistani heritage. The film's scenes are set in Norway and Pakistan. It was selected as the Norwegian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards.
It can be streamed via 'Kanopy' from the Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas County library systems.
ps This meeting will be over dinner.
