Join librarian Doug Swiszcz on Zoom at 11 am on Wed, May 6 for a virtual film chat about Fritz Lang's M (1931, 110 minutes, black and white, in German with English subtitles). A psychopathic murderer (Peter Lorre) of young girls terrorizes a German city causing public hysteria and intense police investigations, which in turn disrupts organized crime.

Join librarian Doug Swiszcz on Zoom at 11 am on Wed, April 29 for a virtual film chat about Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927, 148 minutes, silent, in black and white). Director Lang's pioneering science fiction film about authoritarianism and revolt in a futuristic industrialized city retains its power through its set design, special effects and visual storytelling.

Join librarian Doug Swiszcz on Zoom at 1 pm on Wed, April 8 for a virtual film chat about Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator (1940, 125 minutes, in black and white). This political satire features Chaplin in dual roles:  Adenoid Hynkel (a parody of Adolf Hitler), and a humble Jewish barber who is a dead ringer for the dictator.  Made and released before the United States entered World War II, it was the first of Chaplin's films to fully employ spoken dialogue.
