LTCC begins new film season

Staff reports

The Lake Tahoe Community College Performing Arts League will open its 2001-2002 film season Oct. 5 with a movie from Senegal titled “Guelwaar.”

Guelwaar, a Christian political activist in a predominantly Muslin country, is accidentally buried in a Muslin cemetery. As the characters attempt to right this dilemma, three detective stories unfold to uncover wider truths about the country’s social and political framework. Where is the missing corpse of Guelwaar, who fomented opposition to local corruption and first world neo-imperalism? How did Guelwaar die? If he was killed, who murdered him? Who was Guelwaar the man anyway?

“Guelwaar” begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Lake Tahoe Community College Theater. It will be preceded by the short film, “George Lucas in Love.” Tickets are $4 for general admission, $3 for seniors, youths and LTCC staff and $2 with a LTCC student body card.

This year PAL will precede each feature-length film with a “short” film. The shorts have been selected from independent film festivals, academy award nominees ad student-made shorts.
