TFTS Film Club Screening - They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
We're pleased to announce that this week's screening is:
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? (1969) dir. Sydney Pollack
In the midst of the Great Depression, manipulative emcee Rocky enlists contestants for a dance marathon offering a $1,500 cash prize. Among them are a failed actress, a middle-aged sailor, a delusional blonde and a pregnant girl. Days turn into weeks as the competition drags on and people either drop out or expire. Rocky, however, will do anything for publicity and initiates a series of grueling derbies.
Join us in the Parry-Williams Cinema at 6pm this Thursday 23rd, followed by discussion and drinks in the SU.
