4:00 PM - 7:00 PMWinter Film Series: Shoplifters



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Shoplifters: Hirokazu Kore-eda is one of Japan’s best film writers and directors. His latest , Shoplifters, explores the idea of “family,” in this case a group of people who steal for a living--food, toiletries, whatever--but whose thievery is also a way of life. Chaotic, cramped, and cluttered quarters house the family of father, mother, 10-year-old boy wise beyond his years, adult daughter working in a sex club, and grandma. When the family returns home from a day at “work” they come across a shivering girl by herself outside her home. Before long the child, Juri, is part of the family learning the trade. As months pass, Juri’s disappearance hits the news, but by this time it’s too late to return her and life goes on, with little concern that she was, in fact, kidnapped. Pay close attention as the movie unfolds to reveal more about these people.  There are some surprises in store in this beautifully constructed drama.

Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  
This program was rescheduled from 1/29. The workshop is full but if you're interested in coming, you can get on the waitlist by calling the library at 539-5176.

Freedom Friends of the Library presents Guest Speaker Jenny Waterhouse of Heavenly Henna  with her workshop “Temporary Henna Tattoos” on Tuesday, January 29th at 6:30 PM, at the Freedom Public Library.
 
Jenny of Heavenly Henna is excited to bring her 1 hour workshop of temporary Henna Tattoos to us! The workshop begins with short history of how henna has been around since the Pharisees and throughout many different countries during ceremonies. Every student will get a freshly made henna cone & a take-home package with henna powder & instructions to make your own blend! Many prior participants have been worried that they are not artistic, not to worry. You will be amazed at what you will be able to create once you let your soul and mind free to draw. Bring a friend, its fun to practice on each other but not necessary. Hands and forearms will be your canvas for this event. Your beautiful creation will be dry enough for when you are heading home again. 
 
Jenny began her journey of learning temporary henna tattoos 11 yrs. ago as a fun hobby. She began by bringing her unique tattoos & henna paste blends to summer fairs and events. The amazing interaction with the people she shared this with, is a big part of her enjoyment of this gift. Soon into sharing her gift with others at events, she also began to realize the healing that was taking place with people she worked with. Her clients were now able to have healing included, if they so wished, while having a beautiful henna design. Jenny has attained her Reiki Practitioner Certification which brings a unique combination of henna & healing together. After the many years of bringing her henna to fairs & outdoor events, she decided that she had a calling to start teaching others how to create henna tattoos. She now brings her gift to libraries and homes to share with others this fun gift! One of her many favorite parts is the enjoyment she gets to see in her students when they see the henna come alive in wonderful creations they come up with!

This program is offered free to the public by the Friends of the Library. Registration required. For more information 539-5176.

4:00 PM - 7:00 PMWinter Film Series: The Guilty



Location:  Freedom Public Library
Contact:  Elizabeth Rhymer
Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Guilty: Asger Holm, a Danish policeman, demoted to work in a 911 Call Center, reveals through bits of conversation that he’s embroiled in a controversy in his job and also has an unhappy personal situation. He is an unlikeable sort, abrasive and judgmental to his troubled callers. Soon there comes a serious call that he decides not to refer to another department, but to take charge of himself. Iben has been abducted by her husband and is calling from a car speeding north on the highway. Asger helps the terrified victim hold things together and we learn the horrifying details of Iben’s predicament, and also about the incident that has caused Asger’s troubles. Through clever dialogue and sound effects this aural nail biter will keep your heart pounding as you imagine what is happening outside the confines of the Call Center. The star, Jakob Cedergren, carries it all in taut close-ups as the tension builds.

Description:  The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Green Book: Green Book, based on a true story, is a road movie set in 1962 about a black pianist, Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his white driver, Tony Villelonga (Viggo Mortenson), making their way from New York to Alabama. The Green Book was a manual for black people traveling in the country at that time, but especially in the Jim Crow South, which helped them find welcoming accommodations for the night. Shirley’s record company, having booked him on a southern tour, hired Tony as his driver and bodyguard. The story of interracial male friendship has been told before, but there is controversy about how the film handles racial conflict and critics have objected to the portrayal of Tony as a “white savior.” However, viewers and critics have been won over by the wonderful performances of the actors. Mortenson is funny and crude as the tough guy and Ali is refined and witty as the brilliant pianist; each man has a beneficial effect on the other and they are a joy to watch together.

Soon into sharing her gift with others at events, she also began to realize the healing that was taking place with people she worked with. Her clients were now able to have healing included, if they so wished, while having a beautiful henna design. Jenny has attained her Reiki Practitioner Certification which brings a unique combination of henna & healing together. After the many years of bringing her henna to fairs & outdoor events, she decided that she had a calling to start teaching others how to create henna tattoos. She now brings her gift to libraries and homes to share with others this fun gift! One of her many favorite parts is the enjoyment she gets to see in her students when they see the henna come alive in wonderful creations they come up with!

Winter Film Series: The Guilty
The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

The Guilty: Asger Holm, a Danish policeman, demoted to work in a 911 Call Center, reveals through bits of conversation that he’s embroiled in a controversy in his job and also has an unhappy personal situation. He is an unlikeable sort, abrasive and judgmental to his troubled callers. Soon there comes a serious call that he decides not to refer to another department, but to take charge of himself. Iben has been abducted by her husband and is calling from a car speeding north on the highway. Asger helps the terrified victim hold things together and we learn the horrifying details of Iben’s predicament, and also about the incident that has caused Asger’s troubles. Through clever dialogue and sound effects this aural nail biter will keep your heart pounding as you imagine what is happening outside the confines of the Call Center. The star, Jakob Cedergren, carries it all in taut close-ups as the tension builds.

Winter Film Series: Green Book
The Winter Film Series consists of six films shown in January, February and March on Sunday afternoons at 4:00. Following each movie, we offer a simple soup and bread supper, also free, for anyone who would like to stay for a meal and a chance to talk about the film. The library has a signup sheet for volunteers to bring soup, bread and dessert.

Green Book: Green Book, based on a true story, is a road movie set in 1962 about a black pianist, Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) and his white driver, Tony Villelonga (Viggo Mortenson), making their way from New York to Alabama. The Green Book was a manual for black people traveling in the country at that time, but especially in the Jim Crow South, which helped them find welcoming accommodations for the night. Shirley’s record company, having booked him on a southern tour, hired Tony as his driver and bodyguard. The story of interracial male friendship has been told before, but there is controversy about how the film handles racial conflict and critics have objected to the portrayal of Tony as a “white savior.” However, viewers and critics have been won over by the wonderful performances of the actors. Mortenson is funny and crude as the tough guy and Ali is refined and witty as the brilliant pianist; each man has a beneficial effect on the other and they are a joy to watch together.
