Do you want a chance to watch award-winning independent films? Now you can, at the Hays Public Library!
A first-run independent film will be shown in the library gallery each month, usually on the second Monday of the month at 6:00 pm. The first selection, Karen Cries on the Bus, will be shown on Monday, November 14 at 6:00 pm. Stick around after the film for a discussion led by library staff.
Karen Cries on the Bus, directed by Gabriel Rojas Vera, is a Colombian film about Karen, who has left her slimy but successful husband Mario after ten years of marriage. She needs a fresh start to find out who she is and who she could be, despite her husband’s proclamation that she can do absolutely nothing. With a younger and seemingly stronger friend by her side, Karen takes her first steps toward independence and self-discovery.
Films are provided by Recorded Books through the Film Movement series. Film Movement provides award-winning, first-run independent and foreign films from the top festivals—Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, and many more. Each selection is chosen by a board of curators composted of leading voices in film. Each film will be available for checkout from the library after they are shown publicly.
