Pagan Film Series

This series is an opportunity to come together, to watch engaging films and also to engage each other, to share thoughts and experiences, and to create more of an overlap of the many social circles that exist in this town.

Saturday, Feb. 22nd
8pm SubRosa

In the twilight years of Pagan Rome, Alexandrian philosopher, astronomer, and mathematician Hypatia must navigate a world increasingly under the control of the Christian church and hostile to women in positions of power. Starring academy award winner Rachel Weisz. Rated R.
Friday, Mar. 28th
8pm SubRosa

A retelling of the Orpheus and Eurydice myth, set during the time of the Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. Orfeo is a trolley conductor and musician, engaged to Mira. During Carnival week, he sees Eurydice, who's fled her village in fear of a stalker - it's love at first sight. But she is being stalked by Death, can Orfeo conduct her to safety? Don't look back. Portuguese with English subtitles. Rated PG

Friday, Apr. 25th
8pm SubRosa

Angela Lansbury, along with three plucky working class kids and the dad from Mary Poppins, put the smackdown on the Nazis with a broom and some hocus pocus. This 1971 Disney animated musical was so subversive, the House on Unamerican Activities had to reconvene and investigate. Just kidding. Rated G.

SORCERESS (Le moine et la sorcière)
Friday, May 16th
8pm SubRosa

A Dominican friar visits a 13th-century French village in search of heretics. Despite the opposition of the local priest and the indifference of the villagers, he finds a seemingly perfect suspect: a young woman who lives in a forest outside the village and cures people with herbs and folk remedies. French with English subtitles. Not Rated.
