Virtual - Friday Night Film Discussion: "Another Round" *For Adults

Friday, July 23, 2021

Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! We hope you will join us virtually, until we can meet in person again. We'll be discussing "Another Round" - A film where the characters believe that the human body is born with too low an alcohol level, and so they strive to maintain a 0.05% BAC at all times—buzzed but far from drunk.

The way it works:


PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch Another Round on Kanopy - the library's video streaming service - and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!


You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register - you can use any of BPL's online resources with this card!).


Please register to receive the program link - which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.


Synopsis:

Four friends, all teachers at various stages of middle age, are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, they embark on an audacious experiment from an obscure philosopher: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness.


Winner of the 2021 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
