The Iron Giant – Animated Masterpiece
408 Main Street
When a giant robot crash-lands near a small rural town, an unlikely friendship forms between the alien and a local 9-year-old boy. The Iron Giant is the kind of feel-good story that transcends age. The Iron Giant delivers a timeless intergenerational message about the value of friendship, self-identity, community and why having compassion for others really matters.
Screening followed by a brief introduction to This Is Not A Gun, a creative collective that uses art to broaden the national conversation around race equity, societal trauma and accountability.
Presented as part of the monthly Celebrating Aging Series which explores important cultural narratives through the creative lens.
