Foreign film screenings will continue at Wilbraham Library

Date: 9/14/2009

WILBRAHAM The next Film Movement screening will be on Sept. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Brooks Room of the Wilbraham Library. The film "Dreams of Dust" was an official selection at the Sundance Film Festival, Venice International Film Festival and the Melbourne International Film Festival, and tells the story of Mocktar, a Nigerian peasant, who travels to the dusty gold mines in Northeast Burkina Faso, Africa, to look for work. He encounters Coumba, a beautiful woman struggling to raise her daughter after the death of her family. Mocktar will soon be fighting not only to survive, but also to provide a better future for this mother and her child.

The screening is free and popcorn and soda will be served. A discussion led by Brad MacPherson of the Friends of the Library follows the film. To learn more about the Film Movement titles, check out the Web site at
