Of Gods and Men

In the 1990s, Algeria was gripped by a gruesome, protracted civil war between the government — which declared martial law after annulling elections it appeared to have lost — and a ruthless Islamist insurgency.
The country foundered in a state of terror, with beheadings, throat-slashings and large-scale massacres an almost daily feature of life. These grim circumstances provide the setting for Of Gods and Men, a beautiful, somber and rigorously intelligent film.  The movie is closely based on the true story of a group of French Cistercian Trappist monks caught up in the violence.
Sunday evening, 6:00 p.m., join us for the movie, Of Gods and Men.
