Outdoor film — The Iron Giant
June 22 @ 8:45 pm - 10:45 pm
The Clark will screen The Iron Giant (1999) free outdoors on the lawn, telling the story of a boy Hogarth who is fascinated by the extra-terrestrial.
In a small town in Maine in 1957 (in the time of the Cold War, in the year of the Sputnik launch), he is the only one to take seriously a fisherman’s frantic reports of the landing of a metal giant, and his search is rewarded by the sighting of a metal crunching, electricity-immune 50-footer in the forest. The fim is based on Ted Hughes’ children’s book, from director Brad Bird, who is now known also for later films like The Incredibles.
By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
