The following two movies will be playing this week at OFS:
The Fall (Sept. 27-Oct. 2):
From OFS: "The Fall won a prestigious award at The Berlin International Film Festivall ast year. In Los Angeles, circa 1915, a silent movie stunt man has his legs paralyzed while performing a stunt. He convalesces in a half-deserted hospital, its corridors of cream and lime stretching from ward to ward of mostly empty beds, their pillows and sheets awaiting the harvest of World War I. The stunt man is Roy (Lee Pace), pleasant in appearance, confiding in speech, happy to make a new friend of a little girl named Alexandria Roy tells a story to Alexandria, involving adventurers who change appearance as quickly as a child's imagination can do its work."
The Edge of Heaven (Sept. 27-Oct. 2):
From imdb: "Nejat seems disapproving about his widower father Ali's choice of prostitute Yeter for a live-in girlfriend. But he grows fond of her when he discovers she sends money home to Turkey for her daughter's university studies. Yeter's sudden death distances father and son. Nejat travels to Istanbul to search for Yeter's daughter Ayten. Political activist Ayten has fled the Turkish police and is already in Germany. She is befriended by a young woman, Lotte, who invites rebellious Ayten to stay in her home, a gesture not particularly pleasing to her conservative mother Susanne. When Ayten is arrested and her asylum plea is denied, she is deported and imprisoned in Turkey. Lotte travels to Turkey,where she gets caught up in the seemingly hopeless situation of freeing Ayten.
