Library in Coos Bay Has Free Computer Help And More

The “Friday Foreign Film” series at Coos Bay Public Library continues
at 7pm on Friday, March 8th. Multiple award-winner ‘Mermaid’
(Russia, 2007) is this month’s feature. With considerable charm, romance, and whimsy, this modern-day Russian
fairy tale centers on a young, silent girl who can control the weather and make wishes come true. When young Alisa is denied the opportunity to take ballet lessons, she makes a ten-year vow of silence and is sent to a special school, where she begins to realize her unique talents. Upon turning seventeen, she moves from her small seaside town to Moscow, only to fall immediately in love with a young man named Sasha—who has just jumped into a river in a suicide attempt. Over time, as the limitations of her wish-granting powers grow increasingly apparent, Alisa swears off attempting to alter reality. Fusing myth, dream, and warped reality with abundant invention, the film is an ingenious vision of dark enchantment.
The “Friday Foreign Film” series is normally held on the second Friday of the month and is free to the public. Many of these films are not rated and parental discretion is advised. For more information call
