SFCC film festival offers an international feel

I should have mentioned something yesterday about the ongoing Spokane Falls Community College International Film Festival, the latest showing of which occurred Tuesday night. That screening, which was of the Colombian film "Captive Beauty," followed the festival's opening offering, the French film "The Intouchables" (which screened April 22). My bad.

But let me at least try to make amends by pointing out that the festival will continue for three more weeks. All showings are being held at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesdays at the Garland Theater. SFCC students and staff are free; general admission is $4.50. Here are the remaining viewing selections:

May 6: "Lucky" (2011, South Africa) — From IMDB, "A 10-year-old South African orphan leaves his Zulu village to make his own life in the city… only to find no one will help him, except a formidable Indian woman."

May 13: "Romeos" (2011, Germany) — From IMDB, "A drama centered on the relationship between a young man and a transsexual who is transitioning from female to male."

May 20: "Together With You" (2002, South Korea) — From IMDB, "A violin prodigy and his father travel to Beijing, where the father seeks the means to his son's success while the son struggles to accept the path laid before him."
