Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, #2, Dartmouth Plaza, Lewes (behind Wawa). Presented by the Rehoboth Beach Film Society the What Makes Us Tick? program, an analytical film and discussion series that explores aspects of the human condition.This year’s theme is “Connections Across the Divide.”
The films in this series explore in various ways the question, “How can you hate me, when you don’t even know me?” From an unexpected truce in the early days of World War I; to a shared car ride by two decades-long enemies on opposite sides of the conflict in Ireland; to a black man who seeks out the unlikeliest of friends—white supremacists; these films challenge their subjects to look outside their preconceptions to see those they call their enemies for what they really are: fellow human beings.
Friday, January 12, 2018 at 7:00 pm The year is 1914, and as World War I continues to rage across the European countryside, four individuals stuck on the front lines find themselves faced with the unthinkable in director Christian Carion's Academy Award-nominated account of the true-life wartime event that would offer hope for peace in mankind's darkest hour.
Saturday, January 13, 2018 at 1:00 pm A gripping fictional account of how two men from opposite sides of the political spectrum came together to change the course of history.
Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 1:00 pm Musician Daryl Davis has played all over the world with legends like Chuck Berry and Little Richard, but it’s what Daryl does in his free time that sets him apart. Daryl likes to meet and befriend members of the Ku Klux Klan in hopes of persuading them to change their ways by challenging them with the question, “How can you hate me when you don’t even know me?”
