BVFCC and The Institute Library present second “Books to Film” screening; “The Way” Sun., Apr. 3, at The Institute Library with Jack Hitt Q&A

The_Way_WebBest Video Film & Cultural Center and The Institute Library are teaming up for the second of two special “Books to Film” screenings. “The Way” will be screened at The Institute Library on Sunday, Apr. 3. Tickets are $10 in advance through Eventbrite (with a $1.82 service charge) or $15 at the door. “The End of the Tour”—with screenwriter and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies on hand for a spirited discussion—was screened at Best Video Film & Cultural Center the first Sunday in March.

The Institute Library is located at 847 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT 06510. Phone (203) 562-4045.

On Sunday, Apr. 3, at The Institute Library, BVFCC and the Institute Library will screen “The Way,” starring Martin Sheen. Writer Jack Hitt will be on hand for a post-screening Q&A.

Did you know that The Way is based on Jack Hitt’s book, Off the Road: A Modern-Day Walk Down the Pilgrim’s Route into Spain, and his real-life experience traversing El Camino de Santiago–not once, but twice? The Way stars Martin Sheen as Tom, a bereaved and irascible father whose son has died in an accident while making a pilgrimage along “The Way of St. James” from France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Rather than just return home after retrieving his son’s body, Tom decides to complete the pilgrimage himself to honor—and mourn—his son, running into some memorable characters along the way. Join us at The Institute Library for a showing of the film, and a discussion afterwards with Jack.

Purchase tickets to “The Way” through Eventbrite.
