REEL TALK: THE DIG
April 10, 2021 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
In order to help keep our community healthy, we won’t be showing movies at the Grange until later this year. Instead, the Home Together Spring Film Series has picked three movies you can watch anytime on your own at home and then join a REEL TALK via Zoom. You can listen to a provocative discussion about the film by a special guest and submit your own questions. We can be Home Together with great movies and lively speakers until we can be together in person in front of the big screen at the Grange again.

This is the incredible true story of one of the most important discoveries in British archeology. It’s a story of a wealthy young widow, an eccentric, amateur archeologist, and a search for a buried treasure that starts off promising and ends up enormous. It’s also the story of things lost and longed for, what lasts and what doesn’t.
