WLBC’s Film Club shows great films that have a connection (direct or oblique) to Buddhist teachings, selected and introduced by people from the WLBC sangha (community) and often accompanied by food, drink or music related to the film. Join us to enjoy and discuss the film, and to hang out.

This month, Brigitte and Jonathan introduce La Regle du Jeu (‘The Rules of the Game’), a 1939 pensive satirical comedy of manners by the great French director Jean Renoir which depicts members of upper-class French society and their servants just before the beginning of World War II, showing their moral callousness on the eve of impending destruction.
