NCMC Community Partner for the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival
We are pleased be a Community Partner at the 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival. This year we are sponsoring the film A Moment In the Reeds. Show dates are Friday, April 6 at 9:05 PM and Saturday, April 7 at 11:35 AM at Tower City Cinemas.
On holiday from his studies in Paris, Leevi returns to his family’s summer cottage in Finland to help his father, Jouko, with renovations. Jouko is a bitter man, unreconciled to his wife’s death and to his son’s sexuality. Hired worker Tareq, a Syrian refugee trying to forge a new life, also arrives. Jouko is suddenly called back to the city for business. Distrustful of foreigners he leaves Leevi to supervise, but things take an unexpected turn. A MOMENT IN THE REEDS unfolds like a summer flower. It drifts placidly along on a current of natural beauty and eroticism. As Leevi and Tareq share their hopes and their bodies, the film lets us intimately observe every lovely and telling moment. But Jouko may return at any time. If he discovers their relationship, his anger may shatter their sudden happiness. A MOMENT IN THE REEDS artfully reveals the clash of cultures and dreams that transpire during this summer idyll, one that will alter their lives forever. (In English and Finnish with subtitles) -C.R.
