POV
Happy Winter

 

Every summer on Palermo’s Mondello beach, over 1,000 cabins are built in preparation of the Ferragosto holiday. Centered around a family who goes into debt, three women holding onto the feeling of youth, and a politician seeking votes, this film portrays a vanity fair of beach goers hiding behind the memory of a social status that the economic crisis of recent years has compromised. To be accompanied by the StoryCorps short film “My Father, the Giant,” caught in a thoughtless act of cruelty, a young man learns a lesson in compassion from his father, a larger-than-life tribal leader of the Caddo Nation. Years later, he passes that lesson down to his own son.

 

 

 

POV

Anne of Green Gables

 

This adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel tells the story of Anne Shirley (Ella Ballentine), a precocious orphan placed in the care of uptight Marilla Cuthbert (Sara Botsford) and her brother Matthew (Martin Sheen). Neither the adventurous Anne nor the conservative Marilla could anticipate the profound effect they’d have on each other’s lives.
