7 pm, Marlette Hall, WNC students FREE! Others: $3
Western winds up its international film festival Friday, Dec. 4, with "What a Wonderful World," set in Morocco. The stylish film is a new vision of an old culture with a theme that's for mature audiences.
It will show at 7 p.m. at Marlette Hall on the Carson City campus. Admission: $3.
Souad is a prostitute, whose best friend is Kenza, a tough traffic cop. Kamel is a stony-eyed contract killer who receives his hit orders via the Internet; he is also Souad's favorite customer. When the prostitute falls in love with the traffic cop, the two begin a bizarre courtship doomed by their disparate lines of work. In the mix is a persistent cyber-snooping hacker who stumbles upon the site where Kamel receives his murderous contracts.
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.
