Fridays at 7 pm; WNC students FREE
Western Nevada College's Friday night series of films continues its worldwide tour of exotic locales and different cultures on November 6 with "The Photograph."
The film portrays the story of a spirited and beautiful Indonesian, Sita, whose desperate financial situation leads her to work as a singer in a local brothel to send money to her family.
Trying to get out of her situation, Sita befriends a solitary photographer and rents a room from him. The growing bond between them forms the basis of a touching human drama infused with gentle humor and the rich texture of daily life in Indonesia.
"The Photograph" plays Friday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. at Marlette Hall on the Carson City campus. Admission: $3. Western students with ID are free.
The following Friday, Nov. 13, "Those Three," takes on a contemporary human drama: Just one day from completing their military training, three conscripts desert their camp and escape into the frozen wilderness of northern Iran. Travel through this mountainous, snowbound region is dangerous, but the three opt for the independence it promises. "Those Three" studies human relationships and the value of responsibility, connection and sacrifice.
The film series promotes cultural awareness, and the independent films have been screened and won awards at festivals around the globe. The series is supported by Nevada Humanities. Information: 445-3222.
