Hi All - Thank you Margaret for opening your home to all of us. I understand the next movie night is June 14th but I'm not sure what time the movie is going to start.

Eve Eng (newcomer Phoebe Kut, in a remarkably nuanced and natural performance) was born in 1966, the Year of the Fire Horse, considered an unlucky year for a child to be born. Fire Horse children are said to be strong-willed, Eve tells us in voiceover, and therefore undesirable, and were often drowned in the river as soon as they were born. The river, says Eve, is full of the spirits of the drowned Fire Horses. In Eve's household, her grandmother upholds the traditions of Buddhism, filling the water offering bowls daily and performing rituals. As the film opens, Eve's mother, May Lin (Vivian Wu) chops down the apple tree in the family's backyard; it is considered bad luck to chop down an apple tree, like severing a cord . . . . >>> 05/16/12 10:59 PM >>> Hi Margaret,Yes, thanks for hosting the movie nights. 7:00 works for me also as I can't get there earlier. Is Eve and the Fire Horse one of the movies that has to do with Buddhism?Thanks,Laurel From: "Margaret Bayless" <baylessm@xxxxxxxxxx> To: kscnorthconnect@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 12:28:02 PM Subject: [kscnorthconnect] Re: Movie night To find my home head north from Eugene on Coburg Rd, then East on Harlow toward Gateway. You will enter the Bertha Holt Elementary school zone. At the end of the play ground on your left is a fence and Calvin St. Turn left onto Calvin and come down past at least three streets coming in on your left. There is a small white fence in a yard and my driveway is right across the street on the right. 1105 Calvin St. You can park in the driveway. >>> Linda Oppenheimer 05/15/12 8:35 PM >>> Can you resend directions to your house?

I think it is around 90 minutes, which is a little long. But if we're going to watch films, we'll need to figure out how to give ourselves enough time for most films that are at least 80 minutes long and still have time for discussion. I'm suggesting arrival at 6:30 and film start at 6:45. If you need to come in later, we'll save a few seats to one side. I have plenty of food and tea le ft over from last time. After our first-night discussion, to honor different requests, let's have some nights be a film specifically dealing with Buddhism and others that are not strictly a Buddhist focus but have potential Buddhist themes that we can consider during discussion. Group members can decide on their attendance based on personal interest in the film to be shown. Suggestions are welcome. Margaret !SIG:4fb493c929451077118452!
