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, which includes live rag time music as part of the evening, Sahananda presents The Sting, a 1973 American caper film set in September 1936, involving a complicated plot by two professional grifters (Paul Newman and Robert Redford) to con a mob boss (Robert Shaw). The film was hugely successful at the 46th Academy Awards, nominated for ten Oscars and winning seven, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay.
