Native November
Central Cinema Nights is a movie screening in the Central Library’s Durwood Film Vault taking place either Tuesday or Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.  Join us as we watch and discuss documentaries and feature films in a socially conscious setting, chosen to fit a monthly theme. This month's theme: Native November.

As we ease our way towards the end of autumn, Central Cinema Nights focuses on the representation of indigenous peoples in movies.  Splitting the bill between feature films and documentaries, we examine work created by and concerning indigenous peoples both here in the United States as well as abroad.

Boy (2010, NR)
The year is 1984, and on the rural East Coast of New Zealand, Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is changing kids lives.  While the title character, Boy, idolizes Michael Jackson, his other hero is his father, Alamein - played by director/writer Taika Waititi. When Alamein returns home after several years away, Boy is forced to confront the man he thought he remembered and find his own potential.  Boy is a hilarious and heartfelt coming of age story about heroes, magic, and Michael Jackson.

Everyone is welcome! Movie screenings at the Central Library are always FREE and open to the public.

Upcoming Films:
November  7 (WED) Reel Injun (2009, NR)
November 13 (TUE) Rhymes for Young Ghouls (2013, R)
