Join the Frist for a screening of The Green Knight, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Knights in Armor.
An epic fantasy adventure, The Green Knight tells the story of Gawain, King Arthur’s feckless and headstrong nephew, who irresolutely embarks on a quest to meet the challenge of the eponymous Green Knight, a tree-like giant and tester of men. Gawain contends with magic, ghosts, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character as he navigates the perilous path towards honor and knighthood. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery (A Ghost Story) comes a fresh and bold spin on a timeless Arthurian legend.
