The monthly Film Movement on second Thursdays at 5:30pm in the Meeting Room.  Will be featuring the movie Paradise on February 8th.  This movie is not rated and is spoken in Russian, German and French with English subtitles.  The film synopsisfeatures Olga, a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed. Victim, bystander, or monster – Konchalovsky collapses these identities, offering a new perspective on the Holocaust. Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search ofParadise a look at the past and its lessons for the present.

Saturday, February 17th at 11am the Seward Community Book Club will be discussing The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman.
