a/rthouse in the burbs: a/perture theater film series at Lewisville Branch Library
Can't make it downtown to get your arthouse film fix? Lucky for you, you can watch your favorite independent and niche market films right here in the burbs. a/perture theater will present a classic or modern arthouse film every month on the second Saturday at 2 p.m. Grab some free popcorn and nurture your inner cinephile. Please call 336-703-2940 for film information.
Our next film will be "Waiting for 'Superman'". Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim reminds us that education "statistics" have names: Anthony, Francisco, Bianca, Daisy, and Emily, whose stories make up the engrossing foundation of WAITING FOR SUPERMAN. As he follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, Guggenheim undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying "drop-out factories" and "academic sinkholes," methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems. Produced by Paramount Vantage. (PG)
