GOLD TOWN NICKELODEON

For complete listings, visit www.goldtownnick.com.

“The Central Park Five” — Thursday-Sunday, Feb.7-10. Live interview with Ken Burns at 6 p.m. Synopsis: In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. The film tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice.

“Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings” — 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7.Synopsis: A documentary on Jake Shimabukuro, ukulele virtuoso, who is performing in Juneau Monday. Free, $5 donation would be appreciated. Details: www.jazzandclassics.org.

“The Finger” (Global Lens Series) — 2 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 9. Synopsis: After seven years of dictatorship, a remote village in Argentina formally becomes a town with the birth of its 501st inhabitant. Hidalgo, a slick and ingratiating scion, is eager for the new post of mayor. Smelling a rat, Baldomero (a beloved natural leader with a habitually tapping digit) opposes him with his own candidacy—and soon turns up dead. His shopkeeper brother vows revenge, keeping Baldomero’s severed finger in a jar, initially as a remembrance, but eventually as an absurd icon of leadership that spurs the town to defy crooked elections, interloping powers and Hidalgo to go its own way. Based on real events, this charming dramatic comedy pokes fun at small town ways while celebrating true democratic values.
