Foreign Film: War Witch (Canada)

During a civil war in sub-saharan Africa, a 12 year old girl named Komona is abducted by rebel forces to become a child soldier. She is given a gun and told to choose between shooting her parents, who huddle in front of her, or watching them come to a much more painful end via machete. With tears in her eyes, she shoots them. Then, with other captives, she is whisked by motorised canoe up the river and led into a forest where training exercises immediately commence. New recruits are regularly beaten and face near-starvation. Komonas salvation is her imagination. Stimulated by “magic milk,” a hallucinogen found in sap, she has visions of ghosts in the trees (actors in white body paint, their eyes blank), including those of her parents, who warn her of the enemy’s proximity. She narrowly escapes an ambush after the ghosts alert her to danger. Location: Large Meeting Room Other Information:This program is free and open to the public, but reservations are requested.

Christmas Belles

Christmas Belles By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten (November 7, 8, 14 & 15, 2014) The Futrelle sisters of Fayro TX are back. It’s Christmas Eve and Frankie is weeks overdue with her second set of twins, Twink is in jail for inadvertently burning down the trailer court while attempting to get revenge on the boyfriend who jilted her, and Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the church Christmas program on track. But the pageant cast members are dropping like flies from food poisoning and Geneva, the previous director wants to take over the show. Frankie’s husband Dub is passing a kidney stone and their daughter G. J. seems to be avoiding her suitor who’s trying to propose. What else could go wrong? Well, just who is that new gal in town?
