HANCEVILLE, Ala. — The third of six films being presented at Wallace State Community College as part of South Arts’ Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Films will include a free concert by the filmmakers. Bright Blue Gorilla, a duo made up of filmmakers Robyn Rosenkratz and Michael Glover, will perform at 6 p.m., Nov. 13, before the screening of their film “Go with Le Flo.”
“Go with Le Flo,” the couple’s fifth feature film, is described as a family friendly romantic comedy. A foreign-language film in German and French (subtitles in English), the film is a “charming story about finding true love and taking chances,” according to the South Arts website. The film follows Florian, the owner of a French delicatessen in Berlin who meets the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, she’s already engaged to be married. Florian’s best friend Jenny, however, is in love with him but doesn’t know how to tell him.
Glover and Mea Machrowiak wrote the screenplay for “Go with Le Flo.” Glover also directed the film and Rosenkratz is the producer. The movie was filmed in Berlin and includes an international cast from 20 different countries. The film has been screened at numerous film festivals from Bejing to Burbank.
The remaining films on the Wallace State schedule include “Brothers Hypnotic” on Feb. 12, 2015, “The Starfish Throwers” on March 19, and “If You Build It” on April 9. All will be shown at 6 p.m., in the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. All are free and open to the public.
