DIRECTOR’S CUT: Film expert John Bosco will screen and discuss Of Gods and Men (Des Hommes et des Dieux) (2010-123 min.). Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers in a monastery in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps though the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. Despite the growing menace in their midst, they slowly realize that they have no choice but to stay, come what may. Director Xavier Beauvois scripted with Etienne Comar. Lambert Wilson and Michael Lonsdale star. In French with English subtitles. 7:30 p.m.
