Movie series continues at LTCC

Lake Tahoe Community College will continue its movie series with “Picnic at Hanging Rock” at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 9 at the LTCC theater.

During a group outing on Valentine’ Day 1900 three school girls and a teacher from a private Australian boarding school disappear. Only one is ever found and the audience is left to wonder: “What really happened at Hanging Rock?”

The 1975 Australian film is directed by Peter Weir of “The Dead Poet’s Society” acclaim.

Movie critic Roger Ebert wrote in a Chicago Sun-Times review,” …Peter Weir constructs a film of haunting mystery and buried sexual hysteria. It also employs two of the hallmarks of modern Australian films: beautiful cinematography and stories about the chasm between settlers from Europe and the mysteries of their ancient new home.”

Weir said in an interview for Sight & Sound, “We worked very hard at creating an hallucinatory, mesmeric rhythm, so that you lost awareness of of facts, you stopped adding things up…I did everything in my power to hypnotize the audience away from the possibility of solutions.”

Tickets are $4 general admission, $3 for children and seniors and $2 for LTCC student body cardholders.
