May’s theme is “True’ Stories”
This week’s film is Le Trou, a meticulous thriller by one of the French master-filmmakers.
“Four prison inmates have been hatching a plan to literally dig out of jail when another prisoner, Claude Gaspard, is moved into their cell. They take a risk and share their plan with the newcomer. Over the course of three days, the prisoners and friends break through the concrete floor using a bedpost and begin to make their way through the sewer system – yet their escape is anything but assured.”
- Showtime is 6 pm and after each screening, all will be invited to go into the downstairs conference room where a discussion of the film will be held.
