Movie Night: The Shape of Water
Saturday, May 12, 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Discussion led by Karol Weigelt
Join us in viewing and discussion of this award-winning film from distinguished director, Guillermo del Toro. This visually distinctive, emotionally absorbing story, set against the backdrop of Cold War America, circa, 1962, becomes an other worldly fairy tale. Dream-like images, narratives, archetypes and themes will provide for a lively discussion. As one critic writes, “It is a feast for the eyes and the senses!” If you have not seen it, or already have—but may have missed some of the symbolism—join us on May 12. We will gather at 5:30 pm and the movie will begin at 6:00 pm sharp. Bring salads, appetizers, or drinks to share with the group.
