LIVING WITH PRIDE: Pride Month Film Series: God's Own Country
The Library is pleased to announce our 2nd Annual “Pride Month Film Series” for 2018. Airing Thursday nights this June at 7pm, and centered on the theme “Living with PRIDE,” these four films from the U.S. and overseas celebrate the spectrum and diversity of the LGBTQ+ experience.

Our movie on Thursday, June 21 will be God’s Own Country, winner of two Sundance Awards and more than two dozen other film awards. Set in rural northern England and cited as a “stunning love story that in its finest moments is pure poetry,” “[y]oung farmer Johnny Saxby numbs his daily frustrations with binge drinking and casual sex, until the arrival of a Romanian migrant worker for lambing season ignites an intense relationship that sets Johnny on a new path.” (U.K., 2017, 1:44, Not Rated)

Subtitled in English. Light refreshments will be served.
