The October installment of our Senior Minister’s “Death Positive” Film Series will be a very special screening and discussion of the 1971 classic “Harold and Maude.” Rev. Bill says, “When asked what my favorite movie of all time is, I always respond, ‘Harold and Maude’!”
This “dark comedy” marks a departure from the documentary and educational films we have been showing over the past couple of years, offering a troubling yet tender and often hilarious look at our relationship with death through the eyes (and relationship) of the two protagonists. Harold is a young, morbid, morose man who learns about living life and embracing death with the help of a soon-to-be-octogenarian woman whose attitude toward death is positively positive.
“Harold and Maude” is often listed among the 100 best films, screenplays and soundtracks (Cat Stevens) of all time. Don’t miss the chance to see it for the first, or fourteenth, time with your Heritage family – and don’t forget to BYOP (Bring Your Own Popcorn).
If you have any questions, please see Rev. Bill (SeniorMinister@huuc.net).
