Festival's final week

April 22, 1994

The 25th Baltimore International Film Festival, sponsored by the Baltimore Film Forum, will continue until April 30.

Playing tonight at 7:30 p.m. is "Neria," the highest-grossing film in Zimbabwe's history. It tells the story of a woman confronting the death of her husband and the constricting power of tradition and custom. "Wide-Eyed and Legless," an English love story about a couple's fight against a baffling illness, will follow at 9:30 p.m.

"Women from the Lake of Sainted Souls," a drama about sexual politics and industrialization that shared the top award at last year's Berlin Film Festival, will be shown at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow. "The Northerners," Alex van Warnerdam's film about a provincial Dutch town whose collective conscience is haunted by the recent civil war in the Congo, will follow at 9:15 p.m.

"Between the Teeth," an idiosyncratic concert film that captures the many moods of Baltimore native and former Talking Head David Byrne, will be screened at 11:15 p.m.

"Secuestro," a documentary about strife-torn Colombia, will be shown Sunday at 7 p.m.

Wednesday will bring Baltimore a taste of Robert Redford's Sundance Film Festival with "Where the River Flows North," a portrait of life in early 20th century New England.

Thursday night will feature winning selections of the 1993 National Black Programming Consortium's competition. The films to be shown include "Hardwood Dreams," about the Morningside (Calif.) High School basketball team; "Say Brother: Authentic Voices: Featuring Nikki Giovanni," a montage of overheard voices and overlooked scenes; "Word From the Front," a portrait of a Massachusetts prison; and "Women Should Be Priority," a rap anthem by Sweet Honey and the Rock that celebrates the power of the feminine. Screening will begin at 7:30 p.m.

The films will be shown at the Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive. Tickets are $6 general admission and $5 for festival or forum members, seniors or students; they are available at the door or at the BMA box office, 235-0100. For information call the forum at 889-1993.
