ABOUT FRIDAY NIGHT REELS.

Friday nights from January 5 to March 9, the library is transformed into a Free-Admission movie theatre. Enjoy light munchies and contemplate the films, which are intended for an adult audience.

Note: Everyone is invited, but the films may address situations or themes that could be challenging for younger members of the community.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

In a middle school classroom in Bratislava in 1983, a new teacher, Maria Drazdechova (Maurey), asks each student to stand up, introduce themselves and tell her what their parents do for a living. In a classroom behind the Iron Curtain, the future of all the families are at stake, as the film examines how each family must wrestle with standing up for what they believe in or silently keep the status quo. Running time: 1 hour, 42 minutes.
