    "American Native" documents the struggle of the Ramapough Lenape tribe for official recognition.  The film addresses "the forces aligned against them -- old-fashioned bigotry, gaming interests, local property and government interests, federal neglect, and worst of all, the opposition of other Indian peoples."

    Beverly Braxton will lead a short discussion following the film (run time: 1 hr. 23 mins.).

    War and Peace broadly focuses on Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812 and follows three of the most well-known characters in literature: Pierre Bezukhov, the illegitimate son of a count who is fighting for his inheritance and yearning for spiritual fulfillment; Prince Andrei Bolkonsky, who leaves his family behind to fight in the war against Napoleon; and Natasha Rostov, the beautiful young daughter of a nobleman who intrigues both men.

    As Napoleon’s army invades, Tolstoy brilliantly follows characters from diverse backgrounds—peasants and nobility, civilians and soldiers—as they struggle with the problems unique to their era, their history, and their culture. And as the novel progresses, these characters transcend their specificity, becoming some of the most moving—and human—figures in world literature.
