Glory (1989, 122 min.) follows the 54th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry from its formation as the first African-American regiment in the Civil War to its heroic performance on the battlefield. Edward Zwick’s stirring film stars Matthew Broderick as the Boston Brahmin commander and features Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman among the troops.

“Homericana: Films of the Artist’s Times and Places” is a free film series offered by the Clark in conjunction with its Winslow Homer exhibition. Film screenings, alternating each week between feature films set in Homer's era and an expansive documentary on his life and work, will be shown Monday afternoons at 3 pm in July and August.
