The “F-F-F” Movie Series At Coos Bay Library

The “Friday Foreign Film” series at the Coos Bay Library continues at 7pm on Friday, January 10th, as the multiple award-winning festival favorite ATTENBERG (Greece, 2010) is this month’s feature. Part of the new wave of Greek cinema, Attenberg is an offbeat coming-of-age film.

Marina, an inexperienced 23 year old woman, lives with her terminally-ill architect father, Spyros, in an industrial
Greek town by the sea. Finding the human species strange and repellent, she keeps her distance. Instead she stubbornly observes it through the mammal documentaries of Sir David Attenborough. While preparing for her father’s
impending death, Marina discovers her own sexuality through lessons from her only friend, Bella, and a visiting engineer.

Part abstract performance art, part family melodrama, Attenberg gets down in the emotional muck where life, death and sex intertwine. This film combines intellectual and emotional rigor with black humor, and exudes both a refreshing innocence and bracing sense of discovery.

The “Friday Foreign Film” series, sponsored by the Friends of Coos Bay Library, 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 269-1101.
