The Bower Center for the Arts & the Bedford Public Library System
present Lone Survivor
A D-Day Celebration Film Series Event at the Bedford Central Library
In honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Bower Center for the Arts and the Bedford Public Library System are pairing up to present a WWII and modern Americans at war film series this summer. There will be a reception and/or discussion following or prior to each of the film screenings. The Bower Center will also have a special WWII exhibit in commemoration of the anniversary.
For the final film in our series, we will be shifting away from WWII stories to modern war with the movie Lone Survivor starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, and Eric Bana. Lone Survivor is based on the true story of four Navy Seals who entered Afghanistan to neutralize a high-level al-Qaeda member and found themselves in an enemy ambush alone, fighting for their lives.
