Indie Films for November: "Night on Earth"

Tuesday, Nov 28, 2017 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

In November, view independent films chosen by Westport Library’s Executive Director Bill Harmer. These are iconic films or filmmakers that inspired the new independent film wave.

Night on Earth presents five stories, each involving a cab ride and set in a different city around the world. In Los Angeles, no-nonsense taxi driver Corky (Winona Ryder) gets an engaging customer in the form of a Hollywood casting agent (Gena Rowlands), while a Parisian cabbie (Isaach De Bankolé) must contend with some rowdy African diplomats. Among the other tales, a standout is the Italian taxi ride that finds quirky driver Gino (Roberto Benigni) making a lively confession to an ailing priest. (1991; 2h 9m)
