Dinner and a Doc, July 11th, 2009

This coming Saturday, July 11th will be our next Dinner and a Doc, and we will be watching Spike Lee’s 4 Little Girls, which explores the bombing deaths of four young girls in 1963 and the effects of this event on the civil rights movement in the United States.  Though it played in only four theatres and never achieved any financial success, it is widely acclaimed as one of Lee’s best films and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary.

A complete version of the film is available, and further information can be found in this interview with the director and this interview with the parents of one of the victims.

As usual, the event will be at my place, 130 Dublin Street, Guelph, and all are welcome, though I do appreciate an email or a comment to let me know that you will be coming. We will eat at about 5:30 and begin the film at about 6:00.
