Key Largo – Free screening @ Salt Lake City Library
Aug 13 @ 7:00 pm

In this film noir classic, an approaching hurricane traps embittered World War II veteran Frank McCloud (Humphrey Bogart) in a hotel on the Florida Keys with ruthless gangster Johnny Rocco (Edward G. Robinson). As the storm rages outside, tensions simmer between Rocco and McCloud while sparks fly between McCloud and his war buddy’s widow (Lauren Bacall). We’ll focus on the hurricane that creates the movie’s suspenseful setting in a post-film discussion with severe storm expert Dr. Edward Zipser, a professor in the University of Utah’s Department of Atmospheric Sciences. Discover what scientists have learned about the factors that make some hurricanes so deadly and destructive (think Katrina 2005 and Sandy 2012), get a glimpse at a few of the newest research tools, and learn how real storms differ from the Hollywood versions.

THE INVISIBLE WAR is a groundbreaking investigation about one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem—today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. Focusing on the powerfully emotional stories of rape victims, this is a moving indictment of the systemic cover-up of military sex crimes, chronicling the women’s struggles to rebuild their lives and fight for justice.

My Summer Of Love @ Brewvies

A tale of obsession and deception, and the struggle for love and faith in a world where both seem impossible. The film charts the emotional and physical hothouse effects that bloom one summer for two young women: Mona, behind a spiky exterior, hides an untapped intelligence and a yearning for something beyond the emptiness of her daily life; Tamsin is well-educated, spoiled and cynical. Complete opposites, each is wary of the other’s differences when they first meet, but this coolness soon melts into mutual fascination, amusement and attraction. Adding volatility is Mona’s older brother Phil, who has renounced his criminal past for religious fervor—which he tries to impose upon his sister. Mona, however, is experiencing her own rapture. “We must never be parted,” Tamsin intones to Mona but can Mona
completely trust her?

Beyond Right and Wrong @ Salt Lake City Library

This feature documentary tells the stories of people who both endured and perpetrated cruelty and aggression in the genocide in Rwanda, the violence in Israel/Palestine, and the “troubles” in Northern Ireland. This film focuses on extreme situations but is actually the human story of everyday possibilities in life. After the blood has dried, treaties are negotiated and screams have turned to silence, victims and perpetrators face an uneasy and painful peace. All wounds have not healed. The eighty-minute film portrays the resilience of humanity when facing the chasm between rage and acceptance.

Delicate, yet hearty and palette pleasing, mushrooms add texture and flavor to a variety of cuisines and dishes. But which of the thousands of species of mushrooms is edible, and which will kill you? We’ll begin to learn this important distinction in class, where we will discuss the basics of mushroom hunting, which mushrooms in Utah and surrounding states are edible, and of course, cooking with mushrooms. Our field trip will take us to the Uinta mountains, where we will hunt for boletus edulis (porcini), chanterelle, agaricus campestris (button), and morels. Field trip transportation is by carpool. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.

Sundance Institute Summer Film Series: Little Miss Sunshine @ Red Butte Amphitheatre

Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris
2006 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection, 2007 Academy Award Winner

Meet the Hoover family: Olive, a seven-year-old, slightly pudgy, aspiring beauty queen; her father, Richard, a struggling motivational speaker who can’t help but push; and her mom, Sheryl, who has to bring her Proust scholar/brother, Frank, home after his failed suicide attempt. Frank has to stay with Sheryl’s Nietzsche-worshiping son, Dwayne, who has taken a vow of silence until he is old enough to be a fighter pilot. Then there’s Grandpa, recently kicked out of his nursing home for snorting heroin.
When they are all forced to hop into the old VW bus to take Olive to the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant, this is either a portrait of the most dysfunctional family you’ve ever seen or the absolutely hilarious tragicomic journey of a family whose lives are in for a change.

This film screening is presented free to the public.
