The Foreign Film Series presents the award-winning German drama Four Minutes at 7 p.m. on Friday February 10, 2012 in Room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library.  Dr. Monika Moyrer will lead a discussion following the film.

Four Minutes tells the story of two very different women Jenny, a young convicted killer with enormous musical talent, and Traude, an aging music teacher at the women’s prison who is grooming Jenny to perform in a prestigious piano competition.  With powerful performances from Hannah Herzsprung as Jenny and Monica Bleibtreu as Traude is an unforgettable film.

Four Minutes is directed by Chris Kraus and is in German with English subtitles.

This event is open to faculty, staff students and the public.  Seating is limited, so please contact Sharon Finnerty at or (570) 941-6330 for a reservation.

The film begins at 7 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.
