The Two Harbors Public Library’s international film series continues Tuesday with the Israeli film “Jellyfish.”
The ongoing imbalance favoring male lead roles over females in film will be addressed in the next two offerings in the library’s international film series. Next week’s “Jellyfish” features three lead women whose lives barely intersect but whose diverse relationships loosely share a theme. The New York Times said of it, “A magical glow! Altogether charming! The film’s spirit is refreshingly playful!” And for Valentine’s Day, it begins with a wedding.
Jellyfish is in Hebrew with English subtitles and has a run time of 78 minutes. It is part of the Friends of the Library’s ongoing “Changing Lives, Changing World” foreign film series intended for adults.
Just for fun in February, the Two Harbors Public Library is celebrating Library Lovers Month by collecting pictures of animals enjoying books.
If you would like to add a picture to the library’s collection, either photograph or draw your animal reading or a person reading to an animal and bring it in. The library is putting the Library Love with Animals pictures up on the wall near the door.
