Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! We hope you will join us virtually, until we can meet in person again. We’ll be discussing “Another Round” – A film where the characters believe that the human body is born with too low an alcohol level, and so they strive to maintain a 0.05% BAC at all times—buzzed but far from drunk.


The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch Another Round on Kanopy – the library’s video streaming service – and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!

You will need an Ashland library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register – you can use any of BPL’s online resources with this card!).

Please register by clicking here to receive the program link — which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.

Synopsis:
Four friends, all teachers at various stages of middle age, are stuck in a rut. Unable to share their passions either at school or at home, they embark on an audacious experiment from an obscure philosopher: to see if a constant level of alcohol in their blood will help them find greater freedom and happiness.

Winner of the 2021 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
