KFS presents Oscar nominee "The New World"

April 3, 2006

KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents "The New World," a 2006 Academy Award nominee for Best Cinematography, Friday through Sunday, April 7-9, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Little Theatre show times for "The New World" are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7:00 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 and $3 for students. The film is rated PG-13.

"The New World" stars Colin Farrell, Christian Bale and Christopher Plummer and introduces Q'Orianka Kilcher. It is an epic adventure set amid the encounter of European and Native American cultures during the founding of the Jamestown settlement in 1607. Inspired by the legend of John Smith and Pocahontas, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick transforms this classic story into a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery, both a celebration and an elegy of the America that was and the America that was yet to come.

The Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on Western Michigan University's East Campus. There is free off-street parking behind the theatre. For more information, call the movie line at (269) 387-8221, or visit KFS at www.kalfilmsociety.net,
