Watch an Award-Winning Film from Chile

The Chilean film To Kill a Man will be shown at the Main Library on Tuesday, January 27, at 7:00 pm. It was the winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Grand Jury award.

This 2014 release focuses on Jorge, a hard-working family man who can barely make ends meet. When Jorge is mugged by neighborhood delinquent Kalule, his son decides to confront Kalule, only to get shot himself in the process. Kalule is sentenced to a mere two years in prison. Upon release, he is intent on revenge and begins terrorizing Jorge's wife, son, and daughter. Jorge decides to take justice into his own hands and live with the emotional and psychological consequences.

The unrated film, which runs about 80 minutes in Spanish with English subtitles, is free and open to the public. It will be shown in the Catherine Drake Room, which is handicapped accessible from Church Street. Patrons are welcome to bring light  refreshments.

To Kill a Man is part of the Library's Film Movement series and will be available for checkout after the public screening.
