CinemaSavannah Presents:
Foreign Movie Series -  The Lesson (Bulgaria, 2015)

Saturday, October 1 | 5:30 pm & 8 pm

Black Box at Cultural Affairs
9 W Henry St | Savannah, GA 31401

Newcomers' Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov’s The Lesson is a spare, stripped-to-essentials drama about economic stress and mounting desperation that resonated with international audiences anywhere. The naturalistic style of the storytelling is stealthily enthralling, as is the lead performance by Margita Gosheva as a provincial Bulgarian schoolteacher who is slowly, inexorably driven to the edge by crushing debt. Infused with doses of black humor and brilliant plot turns, the film never becomes depressing. Winner of multiple international film festivals including Rotterdam, Goteborg (best debut), Thessalonki, Tokyo, and Warsaw.  105 minutes. In Bulgarian with English subtitles.

"The kinetic yet poker-faced filmmaking renders the narrative turns especially jolting." -- Chicago Reader

"The Lesson takes a simple, and hardly extravagant premise and somehow constructs, out of this initial set-up, a gripping, increasingly desperate, and often wildly intense narrative rollercoaster." -- Times (UK)

"A moral drama with plenty to teach us about the difficulties of living an ethical life."  -- Spirituality and Practice

"With a steady pace and slowly rising tension, the Bulgarian drama The Lesson catalogs the minor miseries in the life of a well-meaning schoolteacher, which accumulate in a way that's both absurd and utterly realistic." Oregonian

Admission: $7 - Tickets available at the door

CinemaSavannah Presents:
Foreign Movie Series - Girl Asleep (Australia, 2016)

Saturday, October 15 | 6pm & 8pm

Black Box at Cultural Affairs
9 W Henry St | Savannah, GA 31401

Greta Driscoll's bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and invite the whole school! Perfectly content being a wallflower, suddenly Greta's flung far from her comfort zone into a distant, parallel place­a strange world that’s a little frightening and a lot weird, but only there can she find herself. Directed by Rosemary Myers in her feature film debut, Girl Asleep is a fresh-faced delight with all the makings of a local crowd-pleaser.  Winner of the Seattle and Melbourne  Film Festivals.  77 minutes.

"Myers crafts an effervescent yet astute splash of teen life that delights the eyes, warms the heart and tickles the funny bone in equal measures." -- Screen International

"A strange, savvy, big-hearted teen adventure that feels perfectly pitched to its target audience as well as those of all ages in search of something unquestionably unique." Variety

"Australian filmmakers have specialised in coming-of-age stories, as well as deadpan comedies, but few have succeeded in marrying the two with the kind of artful eccentricity on show here." -- Sydney Morning News
