Woodstock film series screens ‘ The Insult ’

Saturday, Jan. 26, 3 p.m. & 5:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK— The ninth annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at the Billings Farm & Museum will feature the documentary “ The Insult ” on Saturday, Jan. 26, at 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. in HD projection and surround sound, with complimentary refreshments. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.

In today’s Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. Ziad Doueiri’s Academy Award-nominated film, “The Insult,” shows the media circus that quickly threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon. And it watches as Tony and Yasser wrestle with values and beliefs that complicate their understandings of one another.

The film garnered a 2018 Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film. It is rated R, and contains subtitles.

Tickets prices are $11 for adults and $6 for children under age 16. BF&M members receive discounted prices. For a complete list of screenings and to purchase tickets, visit or call 802-457-5303. Billings Farm & Museum is located one-half mile north of the Woodstock village green on Vermont Route 12.
