New days, times for Green Screens film series

SPRING HILL — The Hernando County Green Party has changed the days and times of its Green Screens, an ongoing series of free films on current issues. Movies will be shown at 2 p.m. Tuesdays (twice monthly) at the Spring Hill Branch/Harold G. Zopp Memorial Library, 9220 Spring Hill Drive.

The next film to be shown is All the Little Animals on Tuesday. The film stars Christian Bale and John Hurt. It is about a mentally slow young man who escapes an abusive, hateful stepfather who has killed his pets one by one, then befriends a strange recluse who values animals over humans and searches the highways to bury dead animals. This 1998 film is rated R.

Additional movies include:

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, June 10. Based on the book by Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind, documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney traces the corporate scam of the century through corporate audio and videotapes, which tell the inside story of the scandal involving one company's manipulation of California's energy supply and how its executives wrung a billion dollars out of the resulting crisis.

Arabian Nights, July 1. This classic 1942 film stars Jon Hall as the Caliph of Bagdad, back when the Middle East was exotic and exuded romance.

War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death, July 8. Based on the best-selling novel of the same name, this 2007 documentary, narrated by Sean Penn, exposes a 50-year pattern of government deception.

Blame it on Fidel, Aug. 5. This 2006 French film by Julie Gavras is about 9-year-old Anna (played by Nina Kervel), who struggles when her parents become radical political activists in Paris in the early 1970s.

Panama Deception, Aug. 12. Touted by government officials as a police action to bring international drug dealer Gen. Manuel Noriega to justice, conspiratorialist filmmaker Barbara Trent's 1992 film documents the untold story of the December 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama, from the events which led to it to its devastating aftermath. The film, narrated by the late Elizabeth Montgomery, won the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1993.
