MCC International Film Series - "Terraferma"­

Manchester Community College's International Film Series for Spring 2014 contains films from the USA, Denmark, Lebanon, and Italy.  There will be an optional brief discussion, along with a potluck dessert, after each film.

In Terraferma (Italy), a local Sicilian community sees its traditional economy based on fishing and its mode of life based on honor and the rough justice of the sea threatened by everything around - decaying fishing crops, invading tourists, the dissolution of the moral fabric of the local society. And then an apparently bigger threat comes as desperate African boat immigrants start showing up at the shores, after having risked their lives in the stormy seas, flying in despair the devastated continent of their birth. 88mins. Drama. Italian. Rated R.


Time: 7:00 pm (we meet in the lobby about 10-15 minutes ahead so we can discuss where to sit - I prefer halfway in the front section)
Location:  Manchester Community College, SBM Charitable Foundation Auditorium
Directions and Parking: http://www.mcc.commnet.edu/about/directionsMCC.php
Admission: FREE and open to the public, including the post-film discussion.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
