Independent Film Night - Thursday, June 14th @ 6:30 - King of Devil's Island

You won’t want to miss next month’s Independent Film Night at the Pollard (2nd Thursday of every month). On Thursday, June 14th @ 6;30PM we’ll be showing King of Devil’s Island a film by Marius Holst. Stellan Skarsgard stars in this stirring Norwegian film. (A perfect sentence for a pirate to arrr-ti-culate) The film is based on a true story of Norway’s infamous Bastøy Boys Home correctional facility. The story begins with the arrival of a new inmate who immediately clashes with the administration and governor (Skarsgard) by refusing to accept their culture of constant abuse and torment. Ultimately, he leads the other boys to stand up for themselves on an ill-fated mission to reclaim their humanity from the corruption of unchecked power.
