Friday Feature Film Club Discussion

Tuesday, May 267:00—8:00 PMHome ActivityBillerica Public Library15 Concord Road, Billerica, MA, 01821

Join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7 pm for our weekly film discussion about our Friday Feature Film! This week's movie is I'm with PhilA Town, A Tornado, and Twenty People Named Phil. When a New Yorker named Phil Campbell discovers a rural town in Alabama that shares his name, he invites Phil Campbells from all over the world to join him there. The town starts preparing for the hoedown and the arrival of the Phil Campbells, but then a tornado strikes the town; an unimaginably horrible tornado, killing 27 people. And in a town of barely 1,000, everybody knew the victims. Nobody in the area has ever seen anything like it. Hailing from all over the world, 20 Phil Campbells journey to the tiny town of Phil Campbell, AL to help in whatever way they can; not just because it's the right thing to do, but maybe because it's what they are meant to do. You can access this film using Kanopy, a free streaming resource available with your library card. For details on how to use Kanopy, check out a video tutorial available on the library's website here. Reach out to Lizzie at with any questions.
