ARMISTICE DAY: 100th ANNIVERSARY

November 9 -11 at the Trylon

Over the past century, the world has been reshaped by massive conflicts. At the end of World War I, people everywhere heaved a huge sigh of relief, hoping there would never again be such a disaster. We celebrate that sentiment by screening two newly restored antiwar films by one of Germany’s great directors, G. W. Pabst.
