MANCHESTER – The Manchester Library will screen the film “Gigante” on Wednesday, February 17. Show times are 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. See this popular foreign film on a large screen without paying the admission fee of a movie theater!
Jara, a shy and lonely 35- year-old Uruguayan security guard works the night shift at a supermarket monitoring the building’s surveillance cameras. One night he spots Julia, a 25-year-old cleaning woman through one of the cameras and instantly becomes attracted to her. After watching her night after night, he starts following her outside of work. Jara’s life becomes a series of routines and rituals around Julia, but eventually he must decide whether to give up his obsession or confront it.
“Gigante” is part of the library’s monthly Independent Film Series. It is in Spanish with English subtitles. It is open to all ages but geared toward adults. Registration is not required.
