First Friday Foreign Film

The days are short and winter nights cold and long. What better way to spend a Friday evening than watching a film set on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Ibiza?

Hibbing Community College (HCC) is pleased to invite you to the first of the First Friday Foreign Films: “Amnesia,” at Hibbing Community College Planetarium on Friday, December 1 at 7:00 PM. Admission is free, and popcorn and refreshments are available for purchase.

“Amnesia,” by Barbet Schroeder, tells the story of Jo, a 25 year old music composer who moves from Berlin to the island of Ibiza and begins a friendship with Martha, an elderly woman whose painful past has caused her to reject everything to do with Germany, including her native language. The two become friends even as the mysteries around Martha accumulate. As Jo draws Martha into the new world of techno music, Martha puts everything she had previously lived by into question.

The film is in English, German, French and Spanish with English subtitles. “Amnesia” is not rated, but because of potential adult content, the showing is considered rated “R” and is intended for adult audiences.

The film is known for its visual beauty. Scott Foundas of Variety, writes, “Ibiza looks picture-postcard radiant in the pristine HD compositions of regular Schroeder d.p. Luciano Tovoli. Swiss house/techno DJ and producer star Lucien Nicolet (aka Luciano) serves up the film’s bassy, pulsating score.”

“We are excited to offer a cultural night-out option,” says Miriam Kero, Diversity Officer at HCC. “It is fun to watch independent foreign films because they are so different from U.S. big production films. With free admission, there is not a big financial commitment to going. Whether you love the film or not, it will give you something to think and talk about afterward. And the planterium is a great venue—easy access, easy parking, comfortable seats… why not come out and give these films a try?”
