    A girl is torn between her faith and her feelings in this coming of age drama from Denmark. Sara Dahl (Rosalinde Mynster) is seventeen years old and has been raised in a family of strict Jehovah's Witnesses. Sara follows the tenets of the faith and often joins her family to distribute church literature door to door in hopes of attracting new converts. Despite the Dahl family's devotion to their church, there has been a great deal of tension in the household -- her father (Jens Jorn Spottag) has been unfaithful to her mother (Sarah Boberg), and while he's deeply contrite, she's unwilling to forgive him. One night, Sara goes out with some friends from school and they end up at a dance club where she meets a handsome boy named Teis (Pilou Asbaek). The two feel an immediate attraction to one another, and as Sara falls for Teis, she begins to encounter a world and ideas she's never considered before, and starts to question the doctrine that she's been taught since childhood. However, Sara's parents are uncomfortable with her relationship with Teis, and they discuss her new attitudes with John (Anders W. Berthelsen), the pastor at their church, and he confronts her both privately and publicly about the morality of her new love. To Verdener (aka Worlds Apart) was screened in competition at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
  • Young Turks: Journey to the Sun/Boats out of Watermelon Rinds

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Jan 26, 2010

    Includes:Journey to the Sun (1999) Boats Out of Watermelon Rinds (2004) Journey to the Sun Günese Yolculuk is a film that initially draws attention for its political content. Turkish Mehmet Newroz Baz and Kurdish Berzan Nazmi Oirix are two lonely souls trying to keep their heads above water in a huge metropolis. Mehmet comes from the West Coast of Turkey and Berzan's village is far away in the Southeast, near the Iraqi border. They meet in the threatening urban environment of Istanbul, where Mehmet is working for the water department and Berzan is selling music cassettes on the street. Mehmet is in love with Arzu (Mizgin Kapazan), a city girl who works in a laundromat, while Berzan carries the photo of the sweetheart he left behind in his remote village. Mehmet's hopes for a new life come to an abrupt end when he is mistakenly arrested as a terrorist suspect when a package containing a gun is found next to him on the bus. His dark complexion raises suspicions that he might be a Kurd. Tortured in police custody, and now without a job or a place to sleep, he is sheltered by Berzan who lives in a shantytown on the outskirts of the city. Tragedy strikes when Berzan is killed by the police. A new journey begins for Mehmet, who takes the remains of Berzan to his remote village in ethnic strife torn southeast Anatolia. A young woman director with a background as an architect, Yesim Ustaoglu lets the plot unfold through images that flow without obtrusive directorial commentary. The players are either non-professionals or actors new to cinema; Nazmi Oirix and Newroz Baz are from the theatre, but their acting is definitely not theatrical. With Günese Yolculuk, director Yesim Ustaoglu won the AGICOA Prize "Blue Angel" for the Best European Film On A Burning Contemporray Issue at the 49th International Berlin Film Festival in 1999. ~ Gönül Dönmez-Colin, All Movie Guide Boats Out of Watermelon Rinds Two young boys find their modest childhood dreams taking a backseat to their growing ambition as filmmakers in director Ahmet Ulucay's semi-autobiographical childhood drama. Recep (Ismail Hakki Taslak) and Mehmet (Kadir Kaymaz) are two best friends from Tepecik. It's the 1960s, and the Turkish film industry is thriving. There are over two dozen film studios operating throughout the country, though Recep and Mehmet have yet to discover the wonders of celluloid. Recep has entered into an apprenticeship with a local watermelon vendor, while Mehmet is training under the tutelage of a domineering barber. Later, the curious pair happens across a local movie theater that frequently discards worn down film reels. Before long, the boys are collecting the discarded films and screening them in an abandoned shed for Crazy Omer, the village idiot. With no projector at their disposal and only a rudimentary understanding of the filmmaking process, Recep and Mehmet decide that the only means of escaping a life of small-town drudgery is to become famous film directors. Their quest for fame is complicated, however, when Recep begins courting Nihal, an insolent older girl from the neighboring town. Will Recep and Nihal's ambitious dreams prove their ticket to success, or could something as simple as puppy love be all it takes to send the boys reeling in the completely wrong direction. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

    Type: Event | Date: Tuesday, Dec 8, 2009

    A woman who is mourning the love of her life falls into a relationship with a mysterious stranger in this psychological drama from director Monika Treut. Sophie (Inga Busch) is a German artist in her early forties who has been thrown in an emotional tailspin after the death of the woman she loved, Chen Ai-ling (Ke Huan-ru). Sophie has created a video installation in tribute to Ai-ling, and travels to Taiwan to present it at a gallery in Taipei, Ai-ling's hometown. After arriving in Taiwan, Sophie is approached by Wang Mei-li (Ting-Ting Hu), a reporter who asks for an interview. Sophie isn't interested at first, but Mei-li is persistent, and it soon becomes obvious she desires more than just a chat with Sophie. As Sophie begins thinking back on the details of her relationship with Ai-Ling, allowing us to see their story in flashbacks, she grows closer to Mei-li. But Sophie learns that Mei-li isn't actually a journalist even as she continues to do research on Ai-ling's life, and she begins to suspect that Ai-ling has an unusual secret. Ai-mei (aka Ghosted) was an official selection at the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
