TIMEPIECES: PERIOD FILMS TRAPPED IN THEIR MOMENT Now playing at The Trylon microcinema
The term period piece does not have to evoke bodices, Victorian love triangles, and huge floppy hats. These particular films, set in various decades of the twentieth century, show that no matter the era, movies closely mirror their own time.
This series is presented in partnership with The Minnesota Historical Society.
