Freedom of the Press Film Series: All The President’s Men
Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
All the President’s Men, 1976, Rated PG – It’s been over 40 years since the release of this movie but Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman still sizzle as two young reporters investigating the Watergate break-in that ultimately led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon. If ever there was a movie that underscored the importance of a free press in American democracy this is it. The wonderful supporting cast includes Jason Robards and Hal Holbrook. Run time is 120 minutes. Film discussion will be led by Bob Kagan, Professor of Communication at Central Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford.
This is one of the many events in our “Examining Freedom of the Press” series designed in partnership by the Avon Free Public Library, Avon Historical Society, and Avon Senior Center, with support from Avon High School.
