Start: 2:00 pm
Join the Tattered Cover Book Store, UCD’s College of Arts & Media, KUNC 91.5, and the Sie FilmCenter (in the Lowenstein CulturePlex, next door to the Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue) for an exploration of the world of classic movies, hosted by film critic Howie Movshovitz. All programs begin at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $1.00, and are available one hour before the screening from the box office. Parking is available in the parking lot off of Elizabeth or Columbine Streets. This month we’ll see the 1976 Barbara Kopple classic Harlan County USA. Barbara Kopple’s stunning (and Oscar-winning) documentary gets inside a bitter coal miners’ strike in the heart of Appalachia. (Harlan County, Kentucky wasn’t called “bloody Harlan for nothing.) The film has an impressive reach. Kopple pays attention to the woman whose men are on strike; she follows miners to New York where they picketed the offices of the Duke Power Company (again in the news for something other than good behavior); she covers the violence-marred election between Tony Boyle and Jock Jablonski for the presidency of the United Mine Workers. This is an essential American film.
