Free Movies in DC | WETA Movies June 29

Our distinctive personal identities are what make us different from the people around us. Though we may look the same or sound the same, it is important to look beyond the surface to get to the core of each individual’s identity. This Saturday, we’re bringing you two free movies dealing with discovering true identities. Tune in at 9:30 and again at 11:30 and enjoy a commercial free WETA movie night.

At 9:30pm, Bette Davis and Karl

Malden star in the classic thriller Dead Ringer. Davis plays long estranged twin sisters Margaret and Edith who have not spoken since Margaret married Frank Da Lorca who Edith was seeing at the time. Eighteen years later, after the two are reunited at Frank’s funeral, Edith is reminded of Margaret’s cruel and deceptive nature. In a fit of rage, she kills Margaret and assumes her identity, staging the scene to look as if Edith herself has committed suicide. While her plan initially seems foolproof, Edith soon realizes her sister was guilty of more than just petty dishonesty. Now, she faces suspicion from Margaret’s lover Tony and Edith’s own boyfriend Jim (Malden). Will Edith be able to escape her own web of lies or is she in too deep? Watch the trailer here!

Watch Dead Ringer (1964) Saturday June 29 at 9:30pm on WETA TV26 & HD.

Cultural identities can bind communities and provide important information on personal

histories. How do you maintain a cultural identity when time seems to have erased yours? We Still Live Here-Âs Nutayuneân tells the story of a Massachusetts Native American tribe who did the impossible. It was the Wampanoag tribe who taught the Pilgrims to fish and cultivate when they arrived in New England. As the Pilgrims expanded their territorial and cultural boundaries, the Wampanoag language slowly disappeared with each passing generation. Nearly four hundred years after the first contact between their ancestors and European settlers, the modern day Wampanoag people embarked on a mission to revive their native language. Through community efforts and determination, a new generation of fluent Wampanoag speakers came to life. Tune in at 11:30 to watch this inspirational journey. Watch the trailer here!
