Public Invited to attend Free Showing of JFK Film

BISMARCK The public is invited to attend a free showing of JFK by Oliver Stone, on Friday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the North Dakota Heritage Center lobby in Bismarck. Clay Jenkinson, the Dakota Institute director, will provide a brief introduction to the film. This is the final movie of the JFK Friday Film Festival sponsored by the State Historical Society of North Dakota and the Lewis & Clark Fort Mandan Foundation. The films relate to John F. Kennedy, and are being offered as a prelude to The Kennedy Legacy symposium on Nov. 5-7.

JFK is a 1991 American political thriller film directed by Oliver Stone with an R-rating. This controversial film examines the events leading to the assassination of President John Kennedy and alleged subsequent cover-up through the eyes of former New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison, played by Kevin Costner. The movie won two Academy Awards.
