The NeverEnding Story (Wolfgang Petersen, 1984, 92 minutes)
This short film series is about the transformative power of reading. Where better to begin than this story about a lonely young boy with a love of books who becomes drawn into a timeless world of fabulous creatures? The NeverEnding Story celebreates the particular way that books allow you to build worlds around yourself. Our main character Bastian ducks into a book story to avoid school bullies, only to be saddled with a great responsibility. As he imagines himself the hero of the story, reading becomes an engine for maturation and growth.
This event is free. Accessible seats are available; for information, call 413-549-0524
