Third Friday Film: Turtles Can Fly

Turtles Can Fly is a 2004 film set in a Kurdish refugee camp on the Iraqi-Turkish border just prior to the U.S. invasion in 2003. The first film shot in Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein, it focuses on a 13-year-old boy named Satellite who is the de-facto leader of the village thanks to his ability to install satellite dishes. He also organizes the children of the village into teams who sweep and clear minefields in order to buy food. Satellite becomes intrigued with a hauntingly beautiful orphan girl named Agrin who arrives in the village with her disabled brother who just happens to be clairvoyant. Director Bahman Ghobadi dedicated the film "to all the innocent children in the world - the casualties of the policies of dictators and fascists." The Boston Globe reviewer called it a "relentless, bleakly funny, thoroughly remarkable drama." In Kurdish with English subtitles. Free admission and popcorn thanks to Friends of the Library.

Planning Your Garden with Snow Ferreniea

Join horticulturist Snow Ferreniea to take this opportunity to plan ahead for the approaching season. We will take a look at what needs to be done in the spring garden, what plants can be divided, what we can reasonably accomplish and those tasks we can attend to that can help us come summer. We will also take a look at some of the plants of spring, both herbaceous and woody, to plan for color and interest at this season. we will discuss how they can fit into our overall garden schemes and perhaps bring interest at another time as well. Snow Ferrenniea has lectured and taught courses and workshops on wildflowers, perennials, bulbs, companion plants and woody plants at various botanical gardens around the country. Free and open to all. Co-sponsored by the NH Audubon Society and the Hancock Town Library.
