SCC Announces Lineup for 2011 International Film Festival

Orange—Santiago Canyon College will present three films in April as part of its annual International Film Festival, sponsored by the Languages Department.

The films are free and open to the public.

The first film in the festival is El Viaje De Carol/Carol’s Journey on Friday, April 15. In this 2002 drama, a 12-year-old Spanish-American girl travels to her mother’s village in Spain during the Civil War in 1938. A Berlin Film Festival winner, it was nominated for three Goya awards. El Viaje De Carol is in Spanish with English subtitles and is not rated.

The festival continues with La Corsa Dell‘Innocente/Flight of the Innocent on Friday, April 22. In this action-adventure drama, the gentle 10-year-old son of a kidnapper witnesses the massacre of his family by a rival gang and narrowly escapes to find a new, caring family. Nominated for a Golden Globe, this 1993 film is in Italian with English subtitles and is rated R.

The third film in the festival is Caché/Hidden on Friday, April 29. In this R-rated mystery thriller from 2005, a talk show host receives video of surveillance of his family. The host goes to the police, but without a clear threat, there is no help. Caché won the 2005 Best European Film at the European Film Awards.

All three films begin at 6 p.m. in Room D-101 on the Santiago Canyon College campus, and will feature an introduction and short discussion by the Languages Department faculty. Admission and parking are free. For more information, call 714-628-4938 or 714-628-4742.
