Synopsis: This is a unique film, shot in a very stylish cinematic style, with

compelling and mesmerizing visuals. It is a story about petty criminals in

Tapai. One of them flirts with a girl at a roller rink, and offers to give her a

ride home on his motorcycle. A minor traffic incident leads to a completely

unreasonable response.

Synopsis: This is Jack Kerouac’s generation-defining tale of a young writer

who meets a free-spirited couple, and decides to take a road trip with them

across the country. Nothing could have fully prepared him for the people he

would meet, and how this would significantly influence him.

This film was the “Official Selection” at the Cannes Film Festival.

Tagline: The best teacher is experience.

You do not have to be a member to attend our meetings. We welcome everyone who is interested in film, serious cinephiles and novices alike, to join us this Wednesday for what promises to be a lively discussion.

The discussion is held at the Center for Spiritual Living, located at 206 North J Street, on the corner of J & Division. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the discussion begins at 7 p.m. It is held in the sanctuary, so no food or beverages are allowed. Film discussions are the backbone of our Club, when everyone has a chance to share how they felt about the monthly film choices.
