Next Movie Club Gathering OCTOBER 26th AT 2:00 pm IN THE SCHOOLHOUSE.  We are fortunate to have a professor and screenwriter offer to lead us in this new activity.   Denise Hagerty will lead us through a movie to help us see more of the symbolism and impact of effects that we may not have noticed previously. For additional details, please see the information and documents attached below on this page.

For pre-Halloween, Oct. 26th at 2:00: The Spirit of the Beehive, The Spirit of the Beehive.  FOR.  S & Q.  Spanish film.  VISUAL.  1973.  In 1940 after the Spanish Civil War, after watching and being traumatized by the movie Frankenstein (1931), a sensitive seven year-old girl living in a small Spanish village drifts into her own fantasy world.  The film has been called a “bewitching portrait of a child’s haunted inner life” and is listed on several best foreign films lists.  It moves very slowly and quietly but is richly rewarding, and the performance of the two young girls is haunting.  While this isn’t a scary movie per se, I chose it because it is about a child’s imagination and fears of children (and political fears of a nation).  It’s 100 minutes, so we’ll have time to talk a bit longer.  (**  HOWEVER, if you would like a bona fide SCARY movie for pre-Halloween, Denise could also show either Rosemary’s Baby or The Shining or Pan’s Labyrinth.  Drop her a line if you have a preference!  Email Denise Hagerty at shakowan@yahoo.com.)

DO NOT FORGET FREE COMMUNITY CHIPPING EVENT.  You must RSVP to caroline@arkcollaborative.org or call/text 970-368-2177.  Piles must be stacked by 10/15/17 and will be picked up on 10/19/17. For details on stacking and chipping program click on link community chipping Twin Lakes.
