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, Jonathan Cohen presents Local Hero, a 1983 Scottish comedy-drama film written and directed by Bill Forsyth and starring Peter Riegert, Denis Lawson, Fulton Mackay and Burt Lancaster, about an American oil company representative who is sent to a village on the west coast of Scotland to purchase the town and surrounding property for his company. For his work on the film, Forsyth won the 1984 BAFTA Award for Best Direction.
