This Saturday, June 10, the Worcester Public Library is once again hosting Un-Common Cinema.
If you are unfamiliar with the series, it is a film discussion group seeking to bridge touchy subjects with an open heart.
These films are chosen to strike a chord, in order to talk later about whoever we are, however we feel and whatever we believe.
This coming film is a doozy. Birth of a Nation 2016 pokes the bear twice.
The name, artfully chosen, is shared by another film, back in 1915. Also racially charged, the 1915 version of Birth of a Nation glorifies the Klu Klux Klan.
We will not be watching this film.
We will be watching , 2-4 pm in the Saxe Room, of the Main Library, Salem Sq., Birth of a Nation 2016.
This is not your Grandfather’s Birth of a Nation. The Director, Nate Parker turns the film upside down, and instead focuses on the historical slave rebellion of 1831, orchestrated by slave Nat Turner.
The film is controversial from the beginning. So come to the library,
relax, enjoy the movie, stay for the discussion if you want,
and let it all out.
