The N.E.W. World Cinema Series, in affiliation with the Fox Cities Rotary Multicultural Center, strives to educate the community on diverse cultures by bringing films from around the world to Northeast Wisconsin.
On February 17 and 18 the series will premiere the German film “Mostly Martha” at UWFox Valley in Menasha, says chairman Terry Dawson. The 2001 romantic comedy, which was filmed in Hamburg, Germany, and Italy, was written and directed by Sandra Nettelbeck.
The film follows a perfectionist, workaholic chef named Martha who struggles with relationships outside of the kitchen. After a family crisis, Martha is thrust into situations beyond her control and must learn how to balance her new life with her work. “Mostly Martha” won the Créteil International Women’s Film Festival Grand Prix Award, the Goya Award for Best European Film in 2002 and was nominated for the German Film Awards Outstanding Feature Film.
Screenings will be held on Sunday, February 17 at 2pm and Monday, February 18 at 7pm. Call 734-0013 for more information about these monthly film screenings every third weekend.
