Foreign and Independent Film Series
The Great Falls Public Library’s Foreign and Independent Film Series continues its ninth season on Wednesday, December 3, at 7:00 pm. and Saturday, December 6, at 2:00 pm. This series is free and open to the public.
December’s selection is the Turkish film The Watchtower. This film, which was an official selection at the Toronto Film Festival, tells the story of Nihat, who haunted by a tragic incident, isolates himself as the fire warden of a remote forest tower, and a young woman, Seher, who also takes a similarly isolated job at a rural bus station in the region, to cope with her own situation. As the fates of these two characters collide, they develop a tender, if uneven partnership. Their proximity is a catalyst that allows each to rediscover a compassion they’d long since lost. The film in in Turkish, with subtitles.
The featured short is The Foreigner.
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.
