Foreign Film Series at SOPL
The South Orange Public Library is continuing its foreign film series on Tuesday, May 29th with Los Olvidados, directed by Luis Bunuel. The film is about a group of street kids who live a violent and crime-filled life in the slums of Mexico City. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by Gerard Amsellem.
The theme of the series is “Youth on Their Own,” and each film explores issues involving disaffected, abandoned or rebellious youth. Each screening will be followed by a discussion led by a film expert.
The final film in the series is City of God, to be shown on June 26 at 7 pm.
All are welcome and refreshments will be served. For further information please contact Phyllis Kalb, Program Coordinator at the South Orange Public Library at (973) 762-0230.
