Film Screening: Eight Men Out

April 5, 2013
Baltimore, Maryland

Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Homewood Friends Meetinghouse, 3107 N. Charles St

The Hiroshima-Nagasaki Commemoration Committee, Baltimore Quaker Peace and Justice Committee of Homewood and Stony Run Meetings and Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility are continuing the FILM & SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS DVD SERIES. A discussion follows each film.  There is no charge, and refreshments will be available.

EIGHT MEN OUT  [USA, 1988] is based on Eliot Asinof's 1963 book by the same name. Written and directed by John Sayles, the film is a dramatization of Major League Baseball's Black Sox scandal, in which eight members of the Chicago White Sox allegedly conspired with gamblers to intentionally lose the 1919 World Series. Much of the movie was filmed at the old Bush Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. See John Cusack, Charlie Sheen and David Straithairn play baseball players before there was a union.  A special treat is to see Studs Terkel in the role of a sports reporter.
