Movies From All Over

Movie-going in Redding is getting more interesting.

Two programs — one at the Redding Library and one at Shasta College — bring foreign and independent films to the area. And both are FREE.

An international film class at Shasta College, taught by Leo Fong, is open to the public. The every-other-Friday screenings are at 7 p.m. in Room 802, and a class discussion follows. This Friday, the film is “Absurdistan” and on March 5 it’s the German film “The Counterfeiters.” I’ve seen both movies, and they’re wonderful.

The library begins its new Art House Movies series on Saturday, showing the documentary “Mine,” which follows Hurricane Katrina survivors as they’re reunited with missing pets. The screening is at 2 p.m. in the community room. Art House Movies will be shown at the library on the third Saturday of each month.

A journalist since 1975, Steve Brewer is the author of 16 books, most recently the thriller “Cutthroat.” He moved to Redding from New Mexico in 2003.
