Join us for a potluck and Czech movie "Autumn Spring". From Amazon, "this sweet czech film is about an old man who refuses to join the cult of "waiting for death" that most of the aged around him, included his wife, seem to think is the only appropriate way to be. He and his buddy are terminal pranksters who try to milk every bit of fun out of their existence as they can, much to the consternation of his family, who wants him to settle down and act like his life is over. This is truly touching in moments, quietly funny in others and very life affirming altogether. The acting is restrained, but suitably and realistically human. Nothing really stands out on a technical level, but it doesn't need to with such endearing characters."

We start with the potluck, a great way to socialize with fellow RPCVs. Everyone is welcome whether you want to stay for the movie or not.
