Enjoy Palos Verdes Library District’s Film Fest in October!
During the month of October the Palos Verdes Library District will be presenting their 2nd Thursday of the month film UGETSU, (1953 Japan). They will be discussing UGETSU on Thursday, October 8, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. on Zoom. You will be able to watch this film from home, then get together on Zoom to discuss. The films that are being shown are available either through Hoopla or Kanopy, and some also have DVD’s in the catalog available for checkout that can be picked up through the Curbside Holds process. Register for the Film Fest once and you will be able to access the Zoom meeting each time they are offered. To register click here.
The movie is a tale of ambition, family, love and war set in the midst of the Japanese Civil Wars of the sixteenth century. This is a jaunting tale of love and loss, with the blending of the otherworldly and the real, and is one of the most beautiful films ever made. The director Kenji Mizoguchi won the Silver Lion award at the 1953 Venice film Festival.
