German film is next at library

Posted on: January 26, 2016

Maria, a Catholic girl in Germany, wants to live her life in a saintly manner and follow the fundamentalist teachings of her parish priest and promoted by her overstrict mother.   She also wants to follow the Stations of the Cross, just as Jesus did before he was crucified.

The Murphy Library is showing the German/French film, The Stations of the Cross, from Film Movement this Thursday at 4:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 p.m. The film is not rated but may be appropriate for mature high school students. Running time is 110 minutes.

German director Dietrich Brüggemann created only fourteen scenes in the film using a fixed-angle camera and named them after each Station of the Cross. However even at a fixed-angle, these scenes have action, drama and strong performances.  Call the library at 837-2417.
