This Thursday, Oct. 19th 7:00pm, we’ll be screening “Tillsammans” (Together)
“If you’ve ever suspected that Pippi Longstocking was a capitalist pig, Lukas Moodysson’s film is for you. Set in Stockholm in 1975, this revisiting of those not so halcyon good ol’ days brings us up close and extremely personal with a cast of appealing characters living close to their ideals while remaining quite human. Apparently communal life isn’t all vegan dinners, late-night Marxist dialectics, and Joni Mitchell singalongs-even in Sweden. The film beautifully records the residents’ foibles through the eyes of their children, who serve as the group’s conscience. A disturbing, funny, moving and ultimately upbeat look at the utopia we all hoped could exist.”
Popcorn provided. We’ll be meeting in Magda’s Lounge which is in the Commons Block of Totem Park residence. We should be wrapping up by 9:30 or 10:00. Please come join us!
