Film ‘Man of Aran,’ at Thomaston Academy Building
Acclaimed filmmaker Robert J. Flaherty’s award-winning Man of Aran uses stunning actuality footage and tension-packed montage editing, building a forceful drama of life centered on the unrelenting sea. Situated among the frequent and violent storms that slam the sea into its craggy bluffs and barren rock, the Aran Islands are “three wastes of rock” off the Western coast of Ireland where generations have struggled heroically for hundreds of years.
7 p.m. at Thomaston Academy Building. Free but donations are gladly accepted.
