International Film Series Features Argentina, Macedonia

Possible Lives, a film from Argentina, plays Friday, Oct. 2.
"Possible Lives," a film from Argentina, plays Friday, Oct. 2.

Western Nevada College continues its Friday night series of international films October 2 with "Possible Lives." The film depicts a wife in Argentina on a desperate mission to find her husband who disappears during a business trip to Patagonia.

During her search, she makes a startling discovery: a man with an uncanny resemblance to her spouse, but with another name and a wife. Convinced the stranger may be her husband, she ignores entreaties to quit her search just as police discover a body that may be the man she seeks. Shot amid majestic vistas and with vibrant color and sexuality, director Sandra Gugliotta's feature is a haunting and suspenseful study of grief and letting go.

On Friday, Oct. 9, the upheaval of a changed Europe comes into focus with "I am From Tito Veles." Set in the quaint but scarred town of Veles, three sisters long to escape the suffocating environment of their dying community. Burdened by memories of their late father, each chooses a different path: Sapho struggles to secure a visa to Greece, Slavica desperately searches for a rich husband, and Afrodita harbors hopes for love and children. In this contemporary story, director Teona Strugar Mitevska blends stark realism with memorable performances to create a vivid landscape of life and longing in post-communist Macedonia.

Designed to promote cultural awareness, the independent films have been screened and won awards at festivals around the globe. All films are English subtitled; show time is 7 p.m. at Marlette Hall in the Cedar Building, followed by a group discussion. Admission: $3; free to WNC students with ID. The series is supported by Nevada Humanities. Information: 445-3222.
