Sound and Motion Spring Arts series continues with foreign film

Posted: February 28, 2013 - 1:04am

The University of Alaska Southeast’s Sound and Motion Spring Arts series continues this week with a First Friday event that will be held at the UAS REC Center, also known as the Charles Gamble Jr.-Donald Sperl Joint Use Facility, 12300 Mendenhall Loop Road -- a new venue for this season’s events. Student art exhibit openings are part of the evening’s offerings.

This month’s event is a foreign film, brought to UAS in partnership with the Goldtown Theater. “The Finger” (El Dedo), will be shown at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 1. The film tells the story of Hidalgo, a slick and ingratiating scion eager for the new post of mayor of a remote village. Smelling a rat, Baldomero (a beloved natural leader with a habitually tapping digit) opposes him with his own candidacy — and soon turns up dead. The Global Film Initiative promotes cross-cultural understanding through the medium of cinema and supports the work of new and emerging film directors from around the world.

The final First Friday at the REC event of the season will be a concert by UAS student and singer songwriter Irene Muller and her band April 5 at 7 p.m. The group will feature original songs from Irene’s upcoming debut CD.
