Summer’s here and the Berkeley Public Library’s film series “Super Cinema” continues, starting July 5. Each month we explore a different theme or genre on Friday afternoons at 3 p.m. at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge (at Shattuck), in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room. July’s theme is Resisting Injustice. On July 5, we’ll show “Stonewall Uprising”. Eyewitness accounts and archival footage tell the whole story of the June 1969 riots in New York City that sparked the gay rights movement. In “Sophie Scholl: the Final Days” on July 12, we follow the history of student members of the German Resistance. July 19 brings “The Counterfeiters”, in which a man arrested for forging papers for Jews in Nazi Germany is conflicted when forced to train counterfeiters to undermine the Allies’ economies. July 26’s film is “The Rosa Parks Story”, which examines the life of seamstress and secretary of the Montgomery NAACP, whose brave act inspired the Montgomery Bus Boycott and sparked the civil rights movement. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Berkeley Public Library (www.berkeleylibraryfriends.org). For questions regarding this program, call 510-981-6148.
