Foreign and Independent Film Series
The Great Falls Public Library’s Foreign and Independent Film Series continues its eighth season on Wednesday, March 5 at 7:00 pm. and Saturday, March 8, at 2:00 pm. This series is free and open to the public.
March’s selection is the South African film Lucky. This film tells the story of 10-year-old Lucky, who vows over his mother’s grave to make something of himself. Leaving his remote Zulu village for school in the big city, he stays with his negligent uncle. Bonding with a Hindi neighbor, an old woman with an inherent fear of Africans, Lucky shows how a child’s spirit can bring out the best in even the hardest of cases and circumstances. This film is in English, Zulu, and Hindi, with subtitles. It does contain some adult situations.
There is no featured short this month.
Films will be shown each month on the first Wednesday and the following Saturday. The series, which runs September through May, is free and open to the public. Be forewarned, some films may contain strong language or adult situations. They are not rated by MPAA but in our brochures we have tried to indicate content. Brochures are available at the library.
