Reg Lenna Center For The Arts To Show Two Films
All Quiet on the Western Front and Till will be shown this week at the Reg Lenna Center for The Arts.
All Quiet on the Western Front (Wednesday at 7 p.m.), is a German-language, English subtitled adaptation of the 1929 novel of the same name. When 17-year-old Paul joins the Western Front in World War I, his initial excitement is soon shattered by the grim reality of life in the trenches. The film is nominated for 9 Academy Awards, including Best Picture. All Quiet on the Western Front is rated R and is 143 minutes long.
Till, (Saturday at 8 p.m.) is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world. Till is rated PG-13 and is 130 minutes long.
