This Thursday's film is from Columbia and is filled with heartwarming stories & jazzy music

A brother and sister are driving their family’s truck on the Columbian island where they live, and accidentally run over a goat.  For two siblings who do not get along, they are now drawn together to find an explanation about the wrecked truck, or else they will really have a problem.

If you like moving and often funny stories along with jazzy music, then Bad Lucky Goat is for you.  This Film Movement movie will be shown this Thursday at 6 p.m. at the Murphy Library.  Running times is 76 minutes and the film is not rated and may not be suitable for young children.  In Creole with subtitles in English.

Set on Providence Island, Columbian director Samir Oliveros’ first film has a cast of non-professional actors who live on the island.  The island’s musicians composed much of the music.  They go wading in the water, playing their flutes, blowing on conch shells and drumming on bottles.

Film Movement allows us to advertise and show their films one time in public.  Then it goes into the library’s collection for anyone to borrow.  Call 837-2417.
