Virtual Film Chat with Doug: Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times

Join librarian Doug Swiszcz on Zoom at 1 pm on Wed, April 1 for a virtual film chat about Charlie Chaplin's Modern Times (1936, 87 minutes, in black and white). The film looks at the dehumanizing impact of machines on our society and is available to stream via the library's subscription to Kanopy.

This film was the last of Chaplin's silent films and also the last to feature his Little Tramp persona. It is the movie that led the Senate House Committee on Un-American Activities to brand him as a communist sympathizer.
