Film group launches fall season

Reel Movie Mondays are about to hit the silver screen once again as the Red Deer Independent Film Group launches a fresh season.

All selections will be shown at the Galaxy theatre with screenings set for 7 p.m.

The Fall 2010 Series kicks off Sept. 20 with The Kids Are All Right, one of the most talked about flicks at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

It also landed the Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.

The film follows two teens, conceived by donor insemination, who seek out their biological father and introduce him to the family their lesbian mothers have built for them.

Get Low plays Oct. 4.

Described as a movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend, it follow the story of a story of a mysterious 1930s hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party – while he was still alive.

I Am Love is set to be screened Oct. 18.

This film is the story of the wealthy Recchi family, whose lives are undergoing sweeping changes.

The family patriarch has decided to name a successor to the reigns of his massive industrial company, surprising everyone by splitting power between his son and grandson.

On Nov. 1, A Film Unfinished, a popular selection at several festivals, will be screened.

Following the Second World War, 60 minutes of raw film shot by the Nazis in Warsaw was found in an East German archive.

The film became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw ghetto.

However, some time later a long-missing reel was found indicating several take and cameraman staging scenes.

A Film Unfinished showcases the raw footage providing an up-close understanding of the Nazi propaganda machine.

The fall series wraps up with Mao’s Last Dancer on Nov. 15.

Based on an autobiography by Li Cunxin, a ballet dancer, the film is about one of the first exchange students allowed by Mao to visit America.

She refused to return to China which resulted in a dramatic standoff at the consulate.

Tickets are $8 fro members and $10 for non-members.

Memberships are available at the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery.

For more information, call 403-309-8405.
