Free Flower Show Film Series at PHS; Tomorrow: The Rain Forest


Do you love to watch movies and talk about them? Join us in this film discussion series, where we’ll talk about movies in which nature, gardens, or the environment play a starring role.

This year’s selections will focus on films from countries featured in the 2010 Philadelphia International Flower Show “Passport to the World” and will include films from or set in the Netherlands, South Africa, Brazil, India and New Zealand. Participants are asked to view the film before the discussion.

Tomorrow night – Tuesday, Dec. 15 from 6 p.m. – 7 p.m., we’ll be discussing John Boorman’s The Emerald Forest (1985). Free and open to the public and members.

A screening of this film will be held at 4 p.m. in PHS’s McLean Library, 100 North 20th Street, 1st Floor.


An American engineer searches for his son who has been kidnapped by Indians in an Amazonian rain forest. When the father finally tracks down his son, it’s quickly apparent that the boy has become part of another world, a world that causes the father to question his own. 114 min.
