Fences Movie Watch & Discussion

Saturday, August 22nd @ 3 pm

     Some people build fences to keep people out - and other people build fences to keep people in. Academy Award winner® Denzel Washington and Academy Award nominee® Viola Davis deliver the year's most powerful performances in the film adaptation of August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Fences.    Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the film takes a passionate look at former Negro-league baseball player Troy Maxson (Washington) as he fights to provide for those he loves in a world that threatens to push him down. Washington's directorial triumph pulses with the universal truths of love, forgiveness, and happiness despite what lies beyond your own fence. Chosen by the American Film Institute as one of the top ten films of 2016. 

How will this work? 

We will get together on Zoom, then watch the movie at the same time on our respective devices When the movie ends, we gather again on Zoom and have a discussion. You will need to purchase the movie and watch it on your own device—this is not one we can stream on zoom.  

What do I need to do now? 

1.  Complete the form to the right to receive the link to join us by zoom.

2.   Make sure you have Zoom downloaded on your device

3.   Decide how you will be watching the movie There are a few options for watching the movie:

  • You can watch it on your smart TV through the Amazon Video, Vudu and possibly other apps. Purchase the movie within a day before the movie-watch starts so you will be ready to go. Don't start watching it yet.
