As many of our patrons already know, we have our Director's Film Series on Thursdays at 1:00. Now we have a new film series called Monday Movies at 2:00, hosted by yours truly, your AV librarian.
Over the last year I have periodically filled in for our Director on a Thursday with a film I have chosen, usually a documentary. These films were so well-received that I decided to start showing films on Monday’s which have a different focus than Mitch’s films
My first series, which is going on at the present time, is foreign films. So far we have viewed “Ida”, a Polish film which is nominated for this year’s Oscars in the Foreign Film category. Our second film was “Wadja” which was made in Saudi Arabia. Not only was this the first feature length film ever produced in this country, but the director was a woman; unheard of in Saudi Society.
