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.

Rhymes for Young Ghouls (2013, R)
Rhymes for Young Ghouls is a Canadian drama.  This debut by writer-director Jeff Barnaby is set in 1976 on an Indian reserve in the context of the residential school system.  Although it tells the fictional story of a teenager named Aila and her plot for revenge, it is based on the history of abuse of the First Nations people by government agents; including a large number of reported cases of the mental and physical abuse of residential school children. 

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