The Lives of Others - March 3 Lenten film

Movie poster for The Lives of Others
A week from today is Ash Wednesday. Two days later on Friday, March 3 this year's Lenten Film series opens with "The Lives of Others". This German film debuted at CUCC in the Lenten Film Series of 2009 and has not been shown since. It was scheduled as the lead-off film last year, but that showing was cancelled because of an ice storm.

The film provides a strong statement about redemption and reconciliation. In the 2007 Academy Awards, it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film for 2007.

The film will be shown in the Fellowship Hall starting at 7 PM and runtime is 137 minutes. So with a short break the film will end around 9:30 PM. We'll follow with a brief discussion of the film for those who are interested.

Popcorn will be provided. Feel free to bring other snacks to share if you like. The room will be open by 6:40, so come early to pick a good seat, grab some popcorn, and perhaps help set up chairs. Years past have demonstrated that a good bit of socializing goes on at these Lenten movie events where attendance is generally between 15 and 25.

This mailing is going to the mailing list for last year's Lenten Film Series. If you would like to recommend someone else to be added to the list, or if you would like to be removed from the list, just let me know at lavonpage@gmail.com.
