Four film-goers will present and lead discussions of favorite films. Oct. 12: Adrienne Nesbitt, Inside Out (95 min.), a Pixar animation of a 5-year old girl’s outer and inner life. Oct. 19: Ervin Beck, Grand Budapest Hotel (100 min.), a comic adventure in Eastern Europe between the World Wars. Oct. 26: Kyle Hufford, What Lies Inside: Healing in the Face of Trauma (125 min.), documentary studying the darkness that binds us to our suffering. Nov. 2: Jo-Ann Brant, Departures (Japan, 130 min.), an unemployed cellist trains to prepare the dead for funerals. Each film will be viewed in one sitting, with brief introductions and follow-up discussions, so each session will exceed normal LLI classes in length.

Ervin Beck, co-ordinator, is Professor Emeritus of English at Goshen College.
