Today at 5:30pm our Lincoln Film Festival will continue on with a showing of The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The film is a two-hour documentary on the life and legacy of one of our most important, influential, and significant presidents in our country’s history. It takes a deeper look at the intriguing aspects of his presidency like race, equality, religion, politics, and depression.
The finale of the Lincoln Film Festival showing will take place on April 22 at 5:30pm with a showing of the 1956 film Friendly Persuasion. It is a classic family movie, that all will truly enjoy. Gary Cooper Alice Brady and a young Anthony Perkins are a Quaker family in Indiana in 1862. Their quiet life is shattered by an invading Confederate raid lead by John Morgan. The writing, acting, scenery, and music is fantastic. Lincoln Scholar Larry Koch urges you and your whole family to come and join him at a screening of his favorite movie! A brochure with film story facts and information will be shared.
There will also be further presentations about our famous 16th president in the weeks after.
