Heartland Film Festival winner, “Leave No Trace” will be shown this Sunday, October 14, at 4:30 and 7 p.m. in the Bengal Theater. “One of the best films of 2018,” writes the Atlantic Monthly of this story about a former military man and his 13-year-old daughter living off the grid in a vast urban park in Portland, Oregon. When discovered, both are put into social services, where each must come to terms with what they want out of life. Admission is $3 for the public, $2 for ISU staff or free for ISU students with Bengal ID. For trailer and more information, go to www.pocatellofilmsociety.com/leave.
Looking ahead to next week, an exclusive screening of “Sharing the Rough” will be shown on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 7 p.m. in the Bengal Theater, a film that documents the passion it takes to bring a colored gemstone from deep within an African mine and transform it into an heirloom. Proceeds from the screening will support The Devon Foundation (http://devonfoundation.com/), a non-profit charitable foundation whose mission is to bring Gemology and Lapidary education to gem mining communities in Africa, as well as providing school lunch programs to its students. Admission is $5 for the general public, and free for ISU students with Bengal ID.
Also, Sundance Film Festival winner, “Three Identical Strangers” will be shown on Sunday, Oct. 21, at 4:30 & 7 p.m. in the Bengal Theater, telling the fascinating “truth is stranger than fiction” tale of three young men who were all adopted to different families and end up meeting each other by chance and find out they’re triplets who were separated at birth. As they rejoice in their improbable discovery, they begin to learn about the why and how of their separation and it leads to as many questions as answers. Admission is $3 for the public, $2 for ISU staff and free for ISU students with Bengal ID. For trailer and more information, go to www.pocatellofilmsociety.com/three.
