4:00 PM - 6:00 PMWinter Film Series: LION (US, 2016)



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  
The library's Winter Film Series selection today is "Lion". This free series consists of six films shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. Popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

No one who sees this movie will leave without having shed a tear during one or more segments of the film.  Will it be in the beginning when the 5- year old Saroo falls asleep at the train station where he has been separated from his brother as they collected coal to trade for milk? When he boards a train bound for we know-not-where and survives by using his 5 year old street smarts? When, as a successful young adult, he confesses to his devoted adoptive Australian mother (Nicole Kidman) his reasons for keeping secret his research into his origins, and she explains her reasons for wanting to adopt him? There is not a time during this amazing film when you will not be moved by the story and by the players.  The amazing Sunny Pawar, who has no lines as the lost waif, almost steals the movie, but Dev Patel as the grown Saroo, and Kidman as his adoptive mother, break your heart with their performances. The magnificent score and photography help create a sense of the vastness of the country and the teeming mass of humanity in which one small life was saved.

10:30 AM - 12:00 PMImprove Your Smartphone Photography



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  Smartphones are so advanced now that almost anyone can take and edit professional quality photos once you've learned some simple tools and techniques. In this hour and half long workshop Daniela Diosan will teach you how to take better photos with your phone's camera. Daniela came from a family of photographers, but her own interest in photography began in earnest when she had her son. Her friends and family were soon asking for photo sessions and her hobby became a side business. She began teaching smartphone photography as a way to help parents who can't afford or don't have time to hire a professional photographer. You don't have to be a parent to attend this workshop, however. You're welcome to attend if you come with a camera phone and a desire to take better quality photos that will become heirlooms for your family.  You can check out Daniela's work here: https://www.danielathompsonphotography.com/

This workshop, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is Saturday, February 1 from 10:30-12:00. Space is limited, so please register for this free program by coming by the library or calling (603) 539-5176.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMWinter Film Series: THE FAREWELL (US, 2019)



Location:  Freedom Public Library

There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Lulu Wang’s comedy drama of well-intentioned deception, in English and Mandarin, takes place primarily in China and deals with the way two different cultures address end of life experiences.  When New Yorker , Billi, played by the rising rapper/actress/comedian Awkwafina, hears that her Grandmother in China, Nai Nai, is dying, she is overcome with grief and makes plans to visit with other members of the family for one final visit.  The Chinese relatives, following Eastern customs of withholding health information from patients in the family, decide to concoct an elaborate scheme to disguise the real reason for the visit and make plans to stage a wedding for Billi’s cousin.  What should be a joyous occasion is of course a difficult time for the family members who have to conceal their sorrow about their grandmother’s terminal illness.  The movie deftly addresses the conflict between Eastern values of protecting the dying from the truth with Western values of allowing the individual to know and to be informed.  Somehow this story of death and grief is told with a somewhat light touch with even a few laughs along the way.  Still, don’t forget your box of tissues.

Even in 1989, there were still enough stereotypes about women’s abilities ‘to sink a yacht’, so when Tracy Edwards, a 24-year old skipper of the Maiden entered her boat with all-female crew into England’s Whitbred Round the World  Race, the odds were stacked against her.  A number of journalists covering the race were doubtful about the “girls’” chances of even completing a leg, and one was heard to have referred to the crew as a “tinful of tarts”.  This crew was undaunted of course and determined, not just to complete, but to win, and scene after thrilling scene, shows how they strategized and risked death to finish the course.   Why?  Because they were told they couldn’t.   Although Alex Holmes’ exciting documentary of an historic event should be enough, one could predict there will someday be a Hollywood remake.

There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Writer Director Debra Granik follows her first film “Winter’s Bone” (which starred the very young Jennifer Lawrence) with this Sundance Festival entry which to some reviewers is an even better film.  It portrays a family at the edges of society, the kind usually ignored in film and television.   A father, Will (Ben Foster), and his teen-age daughter, Tom (Thomasin MacKenzie), live off the grid in a forest preserve near Portland, Oregon.  The comfortable routine of their daily life in the sun-dappled enclave feels right and works for the pair, though they regularly go to the city for medication and supplies which Will sells to other homeless vets.  At home in their camp, Will, who suffers from PTSD, drills Tom in ways to hide from those who may interfere in their way of life, but of course in time they are found by the authorities who want to send Tom to school and find work for Will.  In the system, which treats the little family with compassion, Tom will gradually come into her own and become independent.    Her beloved father, who won’t survive in the outside world, will realize she must travel in paths he cannot follow.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PMWinter Film Series: HELL OR HIGH WATER (US, 2016)



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  
The library's Winter Film Series selection today is "Hell or High Water". This free series consists of six films shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. Popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

This cops and robbers western slowly plays out in the roasting and ruined Texas landscape of oil rigs and strip malls and speaks of poverty, lost dreams and desperation.  With echoes of the Coen Brothers bleakly humorous films, the story begins with an amateurish bank robbery committed by brothers Toby and Tanner Howard (Chris Pine and Ben Foster).  Their intentions and motivations are murky at first, but are revealed slowly as the film progresses.  The other side of the story is told too, as the Texas Rangers, increasingly interested as more robberies take place, investigate the events.   Laid-back lawman Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) and his trusty side kick Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) share companionable insults as they pursue the robbers and bring them to justice.  This character driven movie has its share of drama and suspense, with enough chases and close calls to keep you engaged.  The four leads, especially Chris Pine and the always entertaining Jeff Bridges give stellar performances.

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Winter Film Series: LION (US, 2016)
The library's Winter Film Series selection today is "Lion". This free series consists of six films shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. Popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

No one who sees this movie will leave without having shed a tear during one or more segments of the film.  Will it be in the beginning when the 5- year old Saroo falls asleep at the train station where he has been separated from his brother as they collected coal to trade for milk? When he boards a train bound for we know-not-where and survives by using his 5 year old street smarts? When, as a successful young adult, he confesses to his devoted adoptive Australian mother (Nicole Kidman) his reasons for keeping secret his research into his origins, and she explains her reasons for wanting to adopt him? There is not a time during this amazing film when you will not be moved by the story and by the players.  The amazing Sunny Pawar, who has no lines as the lost waif, almost steals the movie, but Dev Patel as the grown Saroo, and Kidman as his adoptive mother, break your heart with their performances. The magnificent score and photography help create a sense of the vastness of the country and the teeming mass of humanity in which one small life was saved.

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Improve Your Smartphone Photography
Smartphones are so advanced now that almost anyone can take and edit professional quality photos once you've learned some simple tools and techniques. In this hour and half long workshop Daniela Diosan will teach you how to take better photos with your phone's camera. Daniela came from a family of photographers, but her own interest in photography began in earnest when she had her son. Her friends and family were soon asking for photo sessions and her hobby became a side business. She began teaching smartphone photography as a way to help parents who can't afford or don't have time to hire a professional photographer. You don't have to be a parent to attend this workshop, however. You're welcome to attend if you come with a camera phone and a desire to take better quality photos that will become heirlooms for your family.  You can check out Daniela's work here: https://www.danielathompsonphotography.com/

This workshop, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, is Saturday, February 1 from 10:30-12:00. Space is limited, so please register for this free program by coming by the library or calling (603) 539-5176.

Winter Film Series: THE FAREWELL (US, 2019)

There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Lulu Wang’s comedy drama of well-intentioned deception, in English and Mandarin, takes place primarily in China and deals with the way two different cultures address end of life experiences.  When New Yorker , Billi, played by the rising rapper/actress/comedian Awkwafina, hears that her Grandmother in China, Nai Nai, is dying, she is overcome with grief and makes plans to visit with other members of the family for one final visit.  The Chinese relatives, following Eastern customs of withholding health information from patients in the family, decide to concoct an elaborate scheme to disguise the real reason for the visit and make plans to stage a wedding for Billi’s cousin.  What should be a joyous occasion is of course a difficult time for the family members who have to conceal their sorrow about their grandmother’s terminal illness.  The movie deftly addresses the conflict between Eastern values of protecting the dying from the truth with Western values of allowing the individual to know and to be informed.  Somehow this story of death and grief is told with a somewhat light touch with even a few laughs along the way.  Still, don’t forget your box of tissues.

Even in 1989, there were still enough stereotypes about women’s abilities ‘to sink a yacht’, so when Tracy Edwards, a 24-year old skipper of the Maiden entered her boat with all-female crew into England’s Whitbred Round the World  Race, the odds were stacked against her.  A number of journalists covering the race were doubtful about the “girls’” chances of even completing a leg, and one was heard to have referred to the crew as a “tinful of tarts”.  This crew was undaunted of course and determined, not just to complete, but to win, and scene after thrilling scene, shows how they strategized and risked death to finish the course.   Why?  Because they were told they couldn’t.   Although Alex Holmes’ exciting documentary of an historic event should be enough, one could predict there will someday be a Hollywood remake.

Winter Film Series: LEAVE NO TRACE (US, 2018)
The library's Winter Film Series selection today is "Leave No Trace". This free series consists of six films shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. Popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Writer Director Debra Granik follows her first film “Winter’s Bone” (which starred the very young Jennifer Lawrence) with this Sundance Festival entry which to some reviewers is an even better film.  It portrays a family at the edges of society, the kind usually ignored in film and television.   A father, Will (Ben Foster), and his teen-age daughter, Tom (Thomasin MacKenzie), live off the grid in a forest preserve near Portland, Oregon.  The comfortable routine of their daily life in the sun-dappled enclave feels right and works for the pair, though they regularly go to the city for medication and supplies which Will sells to other homeless vets.  At home in their camp, Will, who suffers from PTSD, drills Tom in ways to hide from those who may interfere in their way of life, but of course in time they are found by the authorities who want to send Tom to school and find work for Will.  In the system, which treats the little family with compassion, Tom will gradually come into her own and become independent.    Her beloved father, who won’t survive in the outside world, will realize she must travel in paths he cannot follow.

Winter Film Series: HELL OR HIGH WATER (US, 2016)
The library's Winter Film Series selection today is "Hell or High Water". This free series consists of six films shown on Sundays at 4:00 during the months of January, February and March. Popcorn is served. Stay afterward if you can for a free soup and bread supper and a chance to discuss the film. There is a signup sheet at the library for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

This cops and robbers western slowly plays out in the roasting and ruined Texas landscape of oil rigs and strip malls and speaks of poverty, lost dreams and desperation.  With echoes of the Coen Brothers bleakly humorous films, the story begins with an amateurish bank robbery committed by brothers Toby and Tanner Howard (Chris Pine and Ben Foster).  Their intentions and motivations are murky at first, but are revealed slowly as the film progresses.  The other side of the story is told too, as the Texas Rangers, increasingly interested as more robberies take place, investigate the events.   Laid-back lawman Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges) and his trusty side kick Alberto Parker (Gil Birmingham) share companionable insults as they pursue the robbers and bring them to justice.  This character driven movie has its share of drama and suspense, with enough chases and close calls to keep you engaged.  The four leads, especially Chris Pine and the always entertaining Jeff Bridges give stellar performances.
