Movie from China rescheduled to April 6

Due to snow on March 2, the Friends of the Jamestown Library have rescheduled their final film in their 2006 Foreign Film Series. The new date for showing "Not One Less" is Thursday, April 6, at 7 p.m.

"'Not One Less" is not only about the poor in China's remote rural areas, but could be dedicated to them; we sense that Zhang Yimou, the director of such sophisticated films as 'Raise the Red Lantern' and 'Shanghai Triad,' is returning here to memories of the years from 1968 to 1978, when he worked as a rural laborer under the Cultural Revolution. His story is simple, unadorned, direct. Only the margins are complicated." From a review by Roger Ebert.

In Chinese with English subtitles and rated G, the film's running time is 100 minutes.

The movie is free and open to the public.
