The Celebration of a Lifetime | Mortality at the Movies
Oct 18 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Reservations Recommended: Text UCCFILM to 41444 or  igfn.us/form/MQcEQg

This month’s film is a Disney/Pixar “Celebration of a Lifetime” and has a 97% Tomatometer!! 

The second of four films in our “Mortality at the Movies” Series (Sept – Dec); contemporary films that explore the value of life through the vantage point of death. Thought-provoking and often funny, these films remind us that while dying is a part of life, it need not keep us from living well.

The film’s rich visual pleasures are matched by a thoughtful narrative that takes a family-friendly — and deeply affecting — approach to questions of culture, family, life, and death.

Despite his family’s baffling generations-old ban on music, a boy dreams of becoming an accomplished musician. Desperate to prove his talent, he finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead where along with a charming trickster he meets there, they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story!

Reviews: 

“Of every Pixar film that deals with family, memory, and loss, ask, “Is there sufficient reason for the tears that will inevitably run down my face by the end?” Yes, thanks in no small part to the ingenious use of the song…

 “Funny, irreverent and eye-popping. It will also make you want to cry at least once but possibly as many as three times.”

“an extravagant tale of culture and ambition that’s exemplary in all aspects: sights, sound and story. The film touts its vibrant layout, rhythmic vibes and overall heartfelt tone that hits home deeply and more uniquely…”

The Last Black Man in San Francisco | Faith and Film
Feb 21 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Reservations Recommended: Text UCCFILM to 41444 or  igfn.us/form/MQcEQg

A man dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of gentrified San Francisco, but as he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

Reviews:
“The Last Black Man in San Francisco possessed a rare quality of being deeply authentic and idiosyncratic at the same time. I haven’t seen anything quite like it.”

“The whole film lifts and sighs as a lament for vanished birthrights, while coaxing these characters to cherish what they have.”
