Foreign and Independent Film Series
The Great Falls Public Library’s Foreign and Independent Film Series continues on Wednesday, March 4 at 7:00 pm. and Saturday, March 7, at 2:00 pm. This series is free and open to the public.
March’s selection is the Dutch film The Deflowering of Eva Van End. In this perfect blend of satire and sincerity, a dysfunctional family gets turned on its head when the “perfect” exchange student moves in. Every member of the family is preoccupied with his or her own peculiar fixation. Trapped in the middle is the youngest, 15-year-old Eva, who struggles for any attention or affection. When Veit, the Adonis German exchange student Eva invited, moves in, the family is shocked and each of them must confront his or her own doubts, insecurities, fears and desires. During Veit’s two-week stay, all five family members begin to reinvent themselves, led by former wallflower Eva, who embarks on the most dramatic transformation of all. The film is in Dutch with English subtitles. It does contain some adult situations.
The featured short is Arie.

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.
