In this summer’s movie series, EPPC Resident
Scholar James Bowman presents five films
on the subject of loyalty and betrayal. Spanning
nearly 60 years and made in a variety of styles
with diverse purposes, all five movies may
nevertheless be seen as engaging with E.M.
Forster’s famous dictum: “If I had to choose
between betraying my country and betraying
my friend, I hope I should have the guts to
betray my country”—words that have haunted
the post-war Western world, both in and out
of the movies.
The series will take place on successive
Wednesday evenings between June 20
and July 25, 2012 (except for the July 4
holiday) at Hudson Institute.
All movies begin at 5:30 PM and will be
followed by a discussion. Pizza, popcorn,
candy, and drinks will be provided. Please
RSVP for each film.
