  • GHCL Annex 7306 Southwest Oleson Road Portland, OR, 97223 United States (map)

This month’s film is: Men Go to Battle (2015, 98 minutes, English with English subtitles)

An indie film from the US.  Most Americans predict that the Civil War will end by Christmas, but Henry (Tim Morton) and Francis Mellon (David Maloney) couldn't care less. Bracing for another winter on their struggling farm in rural Kentucky, the brothers have become suffocatingly close. Francis' practical jokes become more and more aggressive until the night he accidentally injures Henry in a drunken fight. After humiliating himself in front of a daughter (Rachel Korine) of the town's preeminent family, Henry disappears in the night. Months later, Francis learns that Henry has joined the Union army, and the two are left to find out separately what the approaching war will bring.

Doors open at 7:00 PM. The film will begin at 7:30.
