Feb. 5, 2014
The College of Central Florida will present the film “Lincoln” Friday, Feb. 28. The showing is free and begins at 6 p.m. at the CF Hampton Center, 1501 W. Silver Springs Blvd.
“Lincoln,” which was released in 2012, is an American historical drama directed by Steven Spielberg. Based on the story of the 16th U.S. president, the film depicts Lincoln’s struggle to maintain courage on the battlefield during the Civil War while trying to make the decision whether to emancipate the slaves. The film won 30 awards including two Oscars — Best Performance by an Actor and Best Achievement in Production Design. The 150-minute film, written by Tony Kushner, is rated PG-13 for some sequences of war violence.
Journalist Harriet Daniels, a former Ocala StarBanner reporter, will facilitate a discussion following the film.
The film is the first in the 2014 Hampton Center Film Series, a cultural and educational outreach program. This year’s series presents two enlightening films, each followed by a brief discussion. “Won’t Back Down” will be screened March 28 at 6 p.m. The series is sponsored by the CF International Film Series and the CF Foundation.
