“MUSSELS IN LOVE”
Friday (February 27), 5pm
Documentary; In Dutch with English subtitles; 1 hour 23 minutes
The Belgians and French look forward to it with bated breath: the start of the mussel season in the Dutch province of Zeeland. But how does this shellfish end up on our plates? And why do we love them so? “Mussels in Love” (original title “L’AMour des Moules”) is a feature-length documentary that reveals the life of the Zeeland mussel in an intimate, humorous way, with playful music and fascinating close-ups that turn the shell-fish into abstract art.
This is the latest off-season event for WFF, which in years past has teamed up with Images on such films as Hello I Must Be Going, The Illusionist, God Grew Tired of Us, The Quiet American, and Rocket Science.
Williamstown, MA: American folk/ indie rock band Field Report, led by singer/songwriter Christopher Porterfield, will perform at Images Cinema on Sunday, March 24 at 1pm. Porterfield previously was Justin Vernon’s band mate before Vernon went on to form Bon Iver. Field Report appears courtesy of Billsville House Concerts, and proceeds from the concert will benefit both Billsville House Concerts and Images Cinema. Images Cinema is located at 50 Spring Street, Williamstown, MA.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Images Cinema for what promises to be a great show, “ said Doug Packer of Billsville House Concerts. “Indie film and indie music are a great combination! Field Report is a band on the verge of breakout success and having them here in Williamstown will be a thrill.”
When a band – or in this case two bands – play music that is both colorfully cinematic and totally original, where better to perform than in a cinema – with a few projections to complement their performances?
