POLISSE June 13

From: Jims

Hi everyone,
 
I hope everyone had a nice holiday.  Last night, the group went to see Headhunters.  What a great movie.  It isn't even my kind of movie but it was so well done.  It should be at the Cedar Lee another week, but not sure.
 
TWO NOTEWORTHY SHOWINGS AT THE CINEMATHEQUE
 
This weekend, the Cinematheque is showing the last of Asghar Farhadi's movie, his masterpiece "A Separation".  I can't say enough good things about this film.  It shows both Friday and Saturday.    (Last Friday, we saw another of his films, About Ely, which probably rated very good from our 15 attendees.  Thanks to Carol for organizing it.)
 
The other memorable film shows later in the month, when a select few will be seeing the Russian film "Hipsters".   Due to dinner considerations, there is a limit of 6 attendees.   I saw it at the film festival several years back and it was great.  Very colorful, lively, quit un-Russian actually.  It is kind of like Footloose with Russian lyrics.  If someone wants to organize another showing that same night or the Friday before, let me know and we can have  a second event going on that same time.
 
FILMS THIS WEEK
 
Thursday at 7:00 - Wings at the Capitol.  I don't have to tell you that it is the first Academy Award winner and that up until a few months ago, the only winning silent film.  Come see it on the big screen with Drew.
 
Sunday at 4:15 - First Position at the Cedar Lee.  This is a spectacular documentary about the challenges of youth in perfecting their skill in ballet.  Not to be missed.   This is Tanya's first event as an organizer. 
 
 
POLISSE
 
This film about a group of French police officers from the child protection unit.  It follows their stories as they wage battle against neglect, abuse and other uncomfortable situations.  It is intense, but should be a rewarding film.  It shows Wednesday June 13 at the Cedar Lee.
  
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ORGANIZERS
 
While I appreciate all the people who help organize events, we are always looking for others to lead an event.  It is really quite easy and you get to pick the movie, time, place and eats place too.  If you would like to help out, please let me know.  Granted, the perks are limited (perhaps a free movie from time to time), but you would really be helping everyone out. 
 
Please give this consideration. 
 
DUES REMINDER
 
If you have already paid, thank you very much and no need to look further.
 
Otherwise, your dues of $5.00 are very important in  order for us to host directors coming into town and pay for the website.  Please select the link or pay your organizer AT THE NEXT GROUP EVENT if you haven't already.
