Library to begin winter foreign film series

The Friends of the Jamestown Library will begin its winter film series on Thursday, Jan. 14, at 7 p.m. with a showing of “Night of the Shooting Stars” (La Notte de San Lorenzo). This 1982 Italian film tells the story of a group of Italians who flee their Nazioccupied town after hearing rumors that the Americans are about to arrive to liberate them.

On Thursday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m., the Friends will show “Shall We Dance” (Shall We Dansu), a 1996 Japanese film about a successful, but unhappy accountant who finds the missing passion in his life when he begins to secretly take ballroom dance lessons.

The films for February and March will include “Waking Ned Devine,” “Le Violon Rouge (The Red Violin),” “Vitus” and “Il Postino” (The Postman).

Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m.; films will begin promptly at 7 p.m.

All films are free and open to the public. Call 423-7280 for more information.
