Film Forum - October 20

Friday, October 13, 2017

Next week's film is "The Lost City of Z." We'll be showing at in Classroom A on Friday at 1 PM.

Here’s a fascinating tale of obsessive travel…one of those “only the Brits would do this” stories about a real-life British explorer, Percy Fawcett, aided by his devoted wife and son. Over several years Fawcett returns over and over to the great Amazon region of Brazil and Bolivia, looking for a lost civilization. The story became a best-selling novel by David Grann and has now been rendered into an exciting film experience by director/writer James Gray (We Own the Night, The Immigrant) and his cast that includes Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Tom Holland. 141 minutes.
