Next foreign film screening on March 6

The Friends of the Jamestown Library announce the showing of the third film in their 2008 Foreign Film Series, which will be screened on Thursday, March 6, at 7 p.m. The film is the 2002 Iranian film "Baran."

"Baran" is directed by Majid Majidi and is a love story about a 17-year-old boy, Lateef, living in Teheran, working in the kitchen of a construction site. When a young Afghan boy is hired to replace Lateef, he seeks revenge, and then discovers that the Afghan boy is a girl hiding her gender to help support her family. The director manages to make this a romantic fable that highlights the plight of the 1.5 million Afghani refugees in Iran. The film is 1 hour 34 minutes long.

All films are free and open to the public. For more information, contact the library at 423-7280. Refreshments will be served.
