“For Home and Country”: World War I Film Series: "Paths of Glory" 

7:00 – 8:30 pm

Stanley Kubrick’s "Paths of Glory" is among the most powerful antiwar films ever made. A fiery Kirk Douglas stars as a World War I French colonel who goes head-to-head with the army’s ruthless top brass when his men are accused of cowardice after being unable to carry out an impossible mission. This haunting, exquisitely photographed dissection of the military machine in all its absurdity and capacity for dehumanization is assembled with its legendary director’s customary precision, from its tense trench warfare sequences to its gripping courtroom climax to its ravaging final scene. (1957, NR, 88 min.) Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “For Home and Country: World War I Posters from the Collection of Murray and Ann Blum.” Sponsored by UGA Parents Leadership Council.
