Summer Film Series for Tea Partiers



Upcoming Film: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Wednesday, June 27
5:30 - 8:30 PM
In this summer's movie series, EPPC Resident Scholar James Bowman presents five films on the subject of loyalty and betrayal. Spanning nearly 60 years and made in a variety of styles with diverse purposes, all five movies may nevertheless be seen as engaging with E.M. Forster's famous dictum: "If I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country"—words that have haunted the post-war Western world, both in and out of the movies. 
The series will take place on successive Wednesday evenings between June 20 and July 25, 2012 (except for the July 4 holiday) at Hudson Institute.
All movies begin at 5:30 PM and will be followed by a discussion. Pizza, popcorn, candy, and drinks will be provided. Please RSVP for each film.
