Dinner and a Doc will resume this October the 15th. We will be screening Brett Morgan’s Chicago 10, which tells the story of the eight people who were charged in relation to protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the two lawyers who represented them. The film is unique as a documentary because it works extensively with written transcripts of the trial that are read by voice actors and then animated. Here are a few links for those who would like to see more about the film:

1) The official trailer for the film;
2) The official website of director Brett Morgan; and
3) An inteview with director Brett Morgan.

Because of the very new addition of a baby girl to our family, my wife will not be available to run any activities for children this year, so children are only welcome if parents are willing to supervise them during the film.

We will meet as usual at First Baptist Church, Guelph, which is located at 255 Woolwich Street, eating at 5:30 and beginning the film at about 6:00. Please post a comment or send me an email to let me know if you will be coming and if you would like to bring something to contribute to the meal.

Here is the schedule for upcoming months:

November 12th – Prom Night in Mississippi by Paul Saltzman
December 10th – Off for Christmas
January 14th – South of the Border by Oliver Stone
