MURRAY -- The Cinema International film series at Murray State University has announced its spring lineup, beginning Jan. 25 with the Japanese film "Still Walking."
The spring lineup features another series of movies from various corners of the world, including Chile, India, France, China and Egypt. With a new film arriving on campus each week -- playing every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Curris Center Theatre -- the film series is an opportunity to see films that are often difficult to find in cinemas. Discussions led by Murray State faculty and students will take place before and after the screenings.
The first film of the series, "Still Walking," is a 2008 Japanese film directed, edited and written by Hirokazu Kore-eda. "Still Walking" tells the story of a family coping with an emotional situation during a 24-hour period of time. The film was widely praised by critics and won best film at the 2008 Mar del Plata International Film Festival. The 114-minute film includes English subtitles.
The semester's lineup: "Still Walking" (Jan. 25-27); "I am From Chile" (Feb. 1-3); "Whose Streets?" (Feb. 8-10); "The King of Masks" (Feb. 15-17); "North Face" (Feb. 22-24); "Young Frankenstein - Criterion" (March 1-3); "In Light of the Revolution" (March 8-10); "The Clearwater Affair" (March 29-30); "The Man Who Knew Infinity" (April 5-7); "Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry" (April 12-14).
Admission to all Cinema International screenings is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome.
