Hamburger Hill (1987, R) FREE screening
The National Endowment for the Arts Big Read, a partnership with Arts Midwest, broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Showcasing a diverse range of titles that reflect many different voices and perspectives, the NEA Big Read aims to inspire conversation and discovery.
CALS and the Ottenheimer Library at UA Little Rock are hosting a FREE series of virtual screenings centered around Tim O’Brien’s classic The Things They Carried, a 2020-2021 NEA Big Read Book.
Join us for Hamburger Hill (1987, R) on Sunday, November 15. Over the course of 10 days in May 1969, an infantry squad led by Lt. Frantz and composed of both seasoned troops and new recruits, attempts to take a hill during the Vietnam War. In between attacks, the squad members deal with the other psychological stresses of the war, including the effect on morale of the antiwar movement back home and flashes of racial hostility between white and African-American soldiers, all mediated by the cool-headed medic, Doc.
