Why Foreign Films?
We have quite a number of foreign films at the library and perhaps you're wondering why? One reason is that foreign films aren't regularly stocked at the video stores. We try to make these rarer titles available to library users.
Another reason is the quality of the stories portrayed in the films. Many have universal themes that apply to human beings all over the world.
These films also provide the viewer with a look at other cultures. In our multi-cultural America, we need to understand where WE have come from, whether it be Europe, Asia, Canada, South America, Africa, or any of the many islands dotted across the globe.
Here are a few DVD titles that we have in our collection:
Mr. and Mrs. Iyer (India)
Since Otar Left (Georgia, formerly part of the U.S.S.R.)
The Story of the Weeping Camel (Mongolia)
Tsotsi (South Africa)
Wild Strawberries (Sweden)
