RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Public Library kicks off its Learn Through Film screening and discussion series Wednesday with a showing of "Too Big To Fail."

This will be Learn Through Film's eighth season. The series’ mission is to build community by inciting discussion about legal, political and/or moral issues that may or may not directly affect it.

Focusing on key 2016 election issues, three evenings in winter at the Ridgefield Library will feature award-winning films and moderators to facilitate conversation on their subjects afterwards. Topics to be covered are the economy, immigration and the war and terrorism.

The programs are offered from 7-9 p.m. and include the following:

  • Jan. 27 – "Too Big to Fail" - An Emmy award-winning movie on the economic crisis of 2008. How much – and if at all – should the government involve itself in the economy?
  • Feb. 24 – "America America" - An Academy award-nominated film that will prompt questions on today’s immigration and refugee crisis. Viewers will watch the second half of the three hours.
  • March 23 – "The Fog of War" - An Academy Award-winning documentary that addresses lessons that can be learned from past U.S. military involvements.
Moderating each of these discussions will be Richard Land Esq. or Chipman & Mazzucco. To register, call Lesley Lambton at 203-438-2282, send an email to lalambton@ridgefieldlibrary.org or click here .

The Ridgefield Library is at 472 Main St. For more information, click here .
