FILM | "The Issa Valley" 

All terrible submarine jokes aside, Poland has a lot to offer. One of those is film. The University of Rochester's Skalny Center for Polish and Central European Studies sponsors the Polish Film Festival. While it doesn't start until November 6, you can catch a sneak peek Sunday, October 13, at The Little Theatre. Tadeusz Konwicki's 1981 film "The Issa Valley" will be shown at 4 p.m.

The film evokes a childhood in rural Lithuania between the wars. A country boy, Tomaszek, lives on a rich estate, situated on the Polish border. He realizes that the Issa Valley he lives in is to be torn apart by internal political conflicts and unrests among the mixed population of Poles, Lithuanians, Jews, and Russians. He, however, is captivated by a paradise surrounding him, the forest, and his fantasies. Think of it as a Polish version of "Pan's Labyrinth."

Tickets cost $7-$9. For more information visit Rochester.edu and search for the Skalny Center, or call 275-9898.
