January

 

January’s film is “Sweet Thing” from the U.S., directed by Alexandre Rockwell. The film centers around the lives of two children in contemporary New Bedford, Massachusetts in particular one eventful summer spent in a beach house with their mother and her boyfriend. The story is an intense but ultimately uplifting, poetic rendering of childhood that captures the essence of that time in life when a day can last forever. The friendships, loyalties, and challenges of adolescent youth propel the story into a triumph of childhood hope and resilience. Running time is 91 minutes.

 

February

February’s film is “You Will Die at Twenty” from Sudan, directed by Amjad Abu Alala. During her son’s naming ceremony, a Sheikh predicts that Sakina’s child will die at the age of 20. Haunted by this prophecy, Sakina becomes overly protective of her son Muzamil, who grows up knowing about his fate. As Muzamil escapes Sakina’s ever-watchful eye, he encounters friends, ideas, and challenges that make him question his destiny. Sudan’s first Oscar submission, “You Will Die at Twenty” is an auspicious debut and a moving meditation on what it means to live in the present. Running time is 102 minutes.
