ROCKPORT — Rockport Public Library’s new Short Film Club continues Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 1 p.m. with a screening of the Oscar-nominated Swiss film “Parvaneh” (2012).

The film is about Parvaneh, a young Afghan immigrant living in a transit centre for asylum in the Swiss mountains. Upon hearing of her father’s illness, she travels for the first time to Zurich to send her family in Afghanistan money for medical bills. Having only experienced the Swiss countryside, the trip into the city becomes an eye-opening experience.

The film runs 25 minutes and will be played in German with English subtitles. A discussion of the film will be held after the screening for those who wish to participate.
