Watch The Elephant and the Butterfly | Prime VideoWelcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! Today, we’ll be discussing The Elephant and the Butterfly which was an Official Selection at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch The Elephant and the Butterfly on Kanopy — one of 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 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.


When a man reunites with his former lover, he unexpectedly spends the day with his young daughter and they begin to form a unique bond.
