ABOUT:

Please join us for a post-film discussion moderated by Cassie Jo Ochoa

This special screening of THE LOST CITY OF Z is part of our new Books to Film series. Each screening will be followed by a book group style discussion. All lovers of books, book group members, and individuals passionate about books adapted for the screen are encouraged to join us for these combined literary/film events, and to participate in a lively discussion.

Synopsis:

Based on author David Grann’s nonfiction bestseller, THE LOST CITY OF Z tells the incredible true story of British explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam), who journeys into the Amazon at the dawn of the 20th century and discovers evidence of a previously unknown, advanced civilization that may have once inhabited the region. Despite being ridiculed by the scientific establishment who regard indigenous populations as “savages”, the determined Fawcett — supported by his devoted wife (Sienna Miller), son (Tom Holland) and aide-de-camp (Robert Pattinson) — returns time and again to his beloved jungle in an attempt to prove his case. An epically scaled tale of courage and passion, told in writer/director James Gray’s classic filmmaking style, THE LOST CITY OF Z is a stirring tribute to the exploratory spirit and a conflicted adventurer driven to the verge of obsession.
