Second Sunday Foreign Film Series feat. “Joyeux Noel”
December 13, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Grand Stafford Theater is proud to continue our Second Sunday Foreign Film Series!
This month, we’re featuring the 2005 French nominee for best Foreign Language Film, “Joyeux Noel.” Set in 1914, World War I, the bloodiest war ever at that time in human history, was well under way. However on Christmas Eve, numerous sections of the Western Front called an informal, and unauthorized, truce where the various front-line soldiers of the conflict peacefully met each other in No Man’s Land to share a precious pause in the carnage with a fleeting brotherhood. This film dramatizes one such section as the French, Scottish and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate its occurrence.
Don’t miss this powerful film – join us on Sunday at 3PM!
