“Cinema of Law” Returns to Berkshire County
Cinema of Law returns to the Berkshire Athenaeum on four Tuesdays in March. This very popular series is brought to you through a collaboration of the Berkshire Law Librarians, the Berkshire Bar Association, and the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum.
The Law Librarians choose a film that touches upon a point of law. They then recruit a member of the Berkshire Bar Association who will talk about the legal aspects of the film. The Friends provide a venue, the auditorium of the athenaeum at 1 Wendell Ave., and purchase the film and viewing rights.
This year’s lineup includes the following:
6 p.m. March 1, “Beyond Standing Rock”, a documentary about the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest, will be introduced by Attorney Kathleen Jackson.
6 p.m. March 8, “They Shall Not Grow Old”, a documentary about WWI, will be introduced by Attorney Mike Hinkley.
6 p.m. March 15, “Invisible Hand”, a documentary about several environmental law cases, will be introduced by Attorney Elizabeth Goodman.
6 p.m. March 22, “Find Me Guilty”, a drama based on a real mob trial, will be introduced by Attorney Lou Oggiani. This film is rated R.
As always, Friends events are free and open to the public. Masks are required.
