March Film Discussion

As the Film Group meets every month on the first Wednesday, it seems inevitable that there will be a scheduling conflict. Next month is no exception, as March 1st is Ash Wednesday. After some discussion with group members, we've elected to go forward with our regularly scheduled meeting date, and time of 7:00pm in the library meeting room.

We will be screening a little-known gem called Perfumed Nightmare, directed by Filipino filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik, under the auspices of directors Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Studios and Werner Herzog (who included Tahimik in his film Every Man for Himself and God Against All). The film, which is semi-autobiographical, profiles one man's fascination with Western culture and its influence on life in his small village. I'll post a more thorough introduction here shortly, and update the Film Group's website to include the film guide for this documentary in the coming weeks.

See you then,
