2018 Winter Music Series 
Daddy-O! 
Saturday, February 24, 2018 - 1:00 p.m.

Since 1999, Daddy-O! has been re-creating the 1950s era performing in Southern New England, Southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Some may call it, “Oldies”… We call it: “HARDCORE FIFTIES” The look, the sound, the feel brings you back to that time when music was fun and made you wanna dance. Re-experience the birth of Rock & Roll, Rockabilly, Doo Wop, Rhythm & Blues and even Pop! The current lineup for Daddy-O! is:

R.C. (Robert Chandler) on guitar & vocals
Special ‘K’ (Bill Kirby) on slap bass & vocals
Backbeat (Joe Gauvin) on cocktail drums & vocals
Hurricane (Jimmy V) on sax & vocals
Janey Rego on vocals & percussion

Teams of one, two or three will compete for prizes, local fame, and the honor of having their names inscribed on the coveted “Truro Cup.”  Nightly prizes, and additional prizes for the highest score over all three nights.  You don’t have to come to all three nights, and your team can change members. This event is popular, so please sign up.
Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne
Four French Films: Echoes of Proust
Tuesday, February 27, 2:00 p.m.

When the first volume of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time appeared in 1913, it created a sensation. A new way of expressing the mysteries of human emotion had been discovered. These four films, each in its own way, visualize intertwining dramas of complex interior lives. There will be time for discussion after the film.

Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne
In Robert Bresson’s second feature film, based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau, the director is already forging his singularly brilliant filmmaking, creating a moving study of the power of revenge and the strength of true love. (1945, 85 min.)

The Last Pig
Documentary Film
Tuesday, March 6, 6:00 p.m.

The Last Pig is a deeply immersive contemplation on life, death, and personal ethics as it follows a pig farmer grappling with his conscience.  Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death”—one he can no longer live with. The pace of the film is unhurried, allowing the viewer to experience and absorb life on the farm, the herds of intelligent and trusting pigs, the steel and concrete slaughterhouse, and “the ghosts.” The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director/Producer Allison Argo. Ms. Argo is a six-time Emmy-winning filmmaker and noted animal advocate. Producer and Director of Photography Joseph Brunette is an award-winning cinematographer whose work has appeared on National Geographic, CNN, PBS, NOVA, Nature, Discovery and History, and has taken him around the world. These filmmakers, along with farmer and writer Bob Comis, provide a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Come find out about Bob’s experience as a pig farmer, and his decision to become a vegetable farmer instead.
