First Tuesday Film Club:
Established in April 2012 the First Tuesday Film Club presents art and foreign films as well as documentaries once a month at 10:00 AM, 12:00 and 7:00 PM. The response to this “club” whose aim is to simply provide some alternate movies on a regular basis at our regular prices – no dues required – has been very gratifying. Flyers are available at the Lake and a description of each film is included on this website.
There is an advisory committee who assist with the selection of films, help secure special guest lecturers and film discussion leaders and suggest ways to promote the movies in Oak Park, River Forest and the surrounding area. Our current committee includes:
Mary Kay O'Grady
Shirley Johnson (Classic Cinemas)
Your feed-back is important to us. Suggestions are always welcome and can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
"Daughters of the Dust: At the dawn of the 20th century, a multigenerational family in the Gullah community in the Sea Islands off of South Carolina -- former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors' Yoruba traditions -- suffers a generational split. An older group of sisters return after migrating north to New York with intentions of bringing the rest of their family back across the water to the mainland with them. But, tensions arrive when the newly Americanized sisters view their homeland's way of living as backwards, all while Nana, the family elder who embodies the traditions and folklore of their African roots, is struggling to keep the family together and to pass on the knowledge of their ancestors.” Daughters of the Dust, will be presented on Tuesday, February 7 at 10:00 AM, 12:00 and 7:00 PM. Admission is $6 matinee/senior and $8.50 evening.
