Our Next Face the Fiction

Join us for a delightful double feature:  Wyrd Sisters & The Triplets of Belleville

Join us this month for a fun event.  Face the Fiction/Medium Screen Classics presents a
double feature of The Wyrd Sisters (1997) and The Triplets of Belleville (2003).  This
event will have food prepared from Granny Ogg's cookbook!  Bring your appetite and
imagination to this fun afternoon!

Wyrd Sisters (1997):  Meet Granny Weatherwx, the most highly regarded non-leader a
coven of non-social witches could ever have. Generally, these loners don't get involved in
anything, mush less royal intrigue. but then there are those times they can't help it. As
Granny Weatherwzx is about to discover, though, it's a lot harder to stir up trouble in
the castle than some theatrical types would have you think. Even when you've got a few
unexpected spells up your sleave.  Based on the Terry Pratchett novel. On Discworld, (a
world carried on four elephants standing on a huge turtle travelling in space), in a small
country called Lancre, three witches, the flowery Magrat Garlick, the lively Nanny Ogg
and their leader Granny Weatherwax find themselves dragged into royal politics.

The Triplets of Belleville (2003):  The Triplets of Belleville is a 2003 animated comedy
film written and directed by Sylvain Chomet.  When her grandson is kidnapped during
the Tour de France, Madame Souza and her beloved pooch Bruno team up with the
Belleville Sisters--an aged song-and-dance team from the days of Fred Astaire--to rescue
him.

When:  Saturday, May 10, 2014
