Posted on: December 12, 2011

This month’s Film Movement selection at the Murphy Library is “Little Sparrows” about three grown sisters and their wise and loving mother. But they may not have much time left with her; her cancer has come back.

This gem of a film from Australia is the first feature film by Yu-Hsiu Camille Chen. Born in Taiwan, she studied film at the University of Utah, and now works with her own film company in Australia.

Chen shot the film over 19 days with less than two months in pre-production. In an interview for the film Chen says “Little Sparrows is about change, and about the desire and journey for that change. The chance to be someone truer and stronger.” The actresses don’t let her down.

Screenings are at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Running time is 88 minutes. Call 837-2417.
