Posted on: October 7, 2009

Gigante%20PosterAward-winning first-run independent and foreign films are now available at Moon Township Public Library. For the first time local film fans may go to their local library to see the latest releases from Cannes and Sundance through an innovative subscription DVD service called Film Movement.

Each month Film Movement releases a new film to the Moon Township Public Library. Films are released on DVD at the same time as they open in theaters. As a result, film fans everywhere are able to see the first-run releases. Film Movement also grants performance rights to libraries to show the films on-screen at the library.

This month’s title is Gigante directed by Adrian Biniez.

Be one of the first to see Gigante for free at your library! This award winning film from Uruguay has just been released to theaters and through our special partnership with the Film Movement we have it too!

Jara is a shy and lonely 35-year-old security guard at a supermarket on the outskirts of Montevideo. He works the night shift, monitoring the surveillance cameras of the entire building. One night Jara discovers Julia, a 25-year-old cleaning woman, through one of the cameras and is immediately attracted to her. Night after night, he watches her on the cameras while she works. Soon he starts following her after work: to the cinema, the beach and even to a date with another man. Jara’s life becomes a series of routines and rituals around Julia, but eventually he finds himself at a crossroad and must decide whether to give up his obsession or confront it.

Check out the trailer here!

Join us on Saturday, October 17th at 10:00 a.m. for this film experience.
