Friday Night at the MUUvies – Oct 18, 7 PM
A new film series, Friday Night at the MUUvies, continues on the third Friday night of each month at the Meetinghouse until next April, skipping only December. Featured films will invite reflection on ethical and social dimensions of contemporary life and culture. This month: The Band’s Visit, a PG-13 comedy/drama in which an eight man Egyptian police band becomes stranded overnight in a small Jewish village in the Negev Desert. The treatment of the potentially charged differences between the two religious cultures is lighthearted and entertaining, yet sensitive and revealing. This free film series is co-sponsored by UU HUUmanists in Action and FreeThought Fort Wayne, the local chapter of the American Humanist Association.
