MANCHESTER BRANCH LIBRARY TO SHOW
“THE PIANO IN A FACTORY”
MANCHESTER – The Manchester Library will screen, “The Piano in a Factory” on Wednesday, February 15 at 2:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 pm. See this popular foreign film on a large screen without paying the admission fee of a movie theater!
When Chen’s estranged wife reappears asking for a divorce and custody of their musician daughter, the girl proclaims she will live with whoever can provide her with a piano. When efforts to borrow money and even steal a piano fail, Chen decides to build a piano from scratch! He persuades a bunch of reluctant, but loyal, misfit friends to help him forge the instrument in a derelict factory from a heap of scrap steel. Though crude in design and tune, the factory piano awaits its first and final performance from his little girl.
The dialogue is in Mandarin with English subtitles and is 105 minutes long. It is part of the library’s monthly Independent Film Series. Registration is not required. This program is open all ages although it is geared toward adults.
