GORILLAS IN THE MIST
1988, Universal, 129 min, USA, Dir: Michael Apted

Inspired by anthropologist Louis Leakey, Dian Fossey (Sigourney Weaver) travels to Africa to study mountain gorillas. Though she developed a remarkable relationship with these apes through her research, Fossey found the human problems of war, poaching and corruption far more difficult to solve. This inspiring real-life drama about the woman who helped save the gorillas from extinction earned Golden Globes and Oscar nominations for both Weaver and composer Maurice Jarre. Costarring Julie Harris and Bryan Brown.


35 mm!

INHERIT THE WIND
1960, Park Circus/MGM, 128 min, USA, Dir: Stanley Kramer

Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, and Gene Kelly propel this classic courtroom drama about the heated prosecution and defense of a science teacher who dared to teach Darwin's evolutionary theory in a classroom. Science and religion go head-to-head in some of the most memorable performances in film history. Nominated for Best Actor (Spencer Tracy), Cinematography, and Screenplay at the 1961 Academy Awards.


Screening format: DCP (GORILLAS IN THE MIST), 35mm (INHERIT THE WIND)
