The Friends Guild of the Destin Library will sponsor a monthly movie night featuring independent films and documentaries on the third Tuesday of each month beginning at 4:00pm. The film series replaces Foreign Film Night, although occasionally foreign films will be shown, and its goal is to provide area residents with the opportunity to view films that are in limited release and/or unlikely to be shown in local theaters. The first film of the series will be offered on Tuesday, August 20th. The program is free and open to the public. Films are unrated and directed toward mature audiences. Seating will be limited to 30 on a first-come, first-served basis.
Date: Tuesday, August 20th, 2012 (4:00 pm)
Movie Title: The Flowers of War (146 minutes)
Director: Zhang Yimou
Synopsis: From internationally celebrated director Zhang Yimou comes a story of love and war - and a band of outcasts who emerge as unlikely heroes from the shadows of a city's occupation. At once lyrical and visceral, the film enters the apocalyptic world of Nanjing in 1937 only to find a vibrant human story about the invisible people of the city and a series of unexpected relationships that lead to a resonant act of sacrifice. In Chinese, Japanese, Mandarin, Shanghainese with English subtitles
