International Film Series in July at New Haven Public Library

The public is invited to enjoy international films on Tuesday evenings,  July 10-24, at New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St., the library said in a release.
Leading off on July 10 is "Con Fidel Pase Lo Que Pase"  (With Fidel, come what may; 2011), "a special screening by arrangement with the director Goran Radovanovic, with funding from the city of New Haven Peace Commission," according to a statement.
"The one-hour documentary contrasts the official celebrations of the 52nd anniversary of the Cuban Revolution with the continuing struggles of everyday people on the island," the statement said.
"The King of Devil's Island" (2011), starring Stellan Skarsgård, screens on July 17.
"Filmed on location, this drama is based on a true story about the harsh conditions in a reform school in Norway that resulted in an inmate revolt and a showdown with the Norwegian army.  The film series concludes on July 24 with Amador, a drama from Spain that tells the story of the effect of her employer's unexpected death on the young immigrant worker who cared for him," the statement said.
The free film series is presented with support from the International Association of New Haven, the statement said.
All screenings start at 5:30 p.m. and free parking is available.
