The Central Canada Film Group is presenting The Good Earth at the Hapnot Collegiate Theatre tomorrow night. The group’s Colin Davis says the film is an adaptation of the Pearl S. Buck classic and is a story that follows the life of Wang Lung, a young Chinese farmer, who gets married and their struggle to work the land through drought, famine, revolution and hardship. He says this classic film from 1937 stars the late great Paul Muni and Luise Rainer who won the Academy Award for best actress for her role. Davis says although this film is now over eighty years old it is still a gripping drama that includes scenes that will shock and amaze its viewers adding it is a stunning piece of cinematography and a must see.
They will also take a look at the old Kung Fu television series from the early 1970s starting at 7 with the main feature starting at 7:30 in the Hapnot Collegiate Theatre tomorrow night and admission is free.
