FREE ADMISSION

Stonewall Uprising
7:00 P.M.
LANSDOWNE PUBLIC LIBRARY
55 S. LANSDOWNE AVE.

Told by those who took part – from drag queens and street hustlers to police detectives, journalists and a former mayor of New York – and featuring a rich trove of archival footage, Stonewall Uprising revisits a time when homosexual acts were illegal throughout America. Hunted and often entrapped by undercover police in their hometowns, gays from around the U.S. began fleeing to New York in search of a sanctuary. Hounded there still by an aggressive police force, they found a semblance of normalcy in a Mafia-run gay bar in Greenwich Village, the Stonewall Inn. When police raided Stonewall on June 28, 1969, gay men and women did something they hadn’t done before: they fought back. As the streets of New York erupted into violent protests and street demonstrations, the collective anger announced that the gay rights movement had arrived.

Discussion will follow the film. Free popcorn provided. Bring your own beverage.

Water

LANSDOWNE PUBLIC LIBRARY
55 S. LANSDOWNE AVE.

Come immerse yourself in WATER at The Lansdowne Public Library in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League of Philadelphia’s NO PLACE for HATE initiative has been presenting thought provoking movies with open discussion following the film presentation on the last Thursday of the month.

“Water” is a beautiful, tragic, sad, emotionally available film about the deplorable situation in India in regards to its many millions of widows: who are segregated into Ashrams, forced to beg on the street, some into prostitution to support the Ashram and are viewed as if not Untouchable…then unavailable for remarriage.

“Water” focuses on the very young, Chuyia (age 9) and a beautiful young woman named Kalayani, both widows and the story unfolds as a young Ghandhi follower, Narayana, falls in love with the forbidden Kalayani.

Water can cleanse, Water can heal, Water brings forth life and renewal and “Water” is full of these images, but it is also about Hope for the future and Redemption through the restorative power of Love.

Free popcorn provided. Bring your own beverage.
