Spiritual Cinema to be shown tonight

Friday, the Center for Living Compassion is showing two movies: “The Overture” and “Does God Play Football?” in Nevada City.

The latter is a short film about a fatherless boy who goes to church, hoping a priest might become his surrogate “father.” What he discovers is miraculously close to the truth. This is a beautiful tale of family and the innocent search for belonging.

“The Overture” is an exhilarating journey that begins at the turn of the century in Thailand and fills us with the magic of music, culture and tradition. Based on a true story, this full-length film follows Sorn, the youngest son in a family of gifted musicians chosen to represent traditional music in Thailand, who faces a new mission in life when the political climate changes. (In Thai with English subtitles.)

This free (although donations are accepted) screening takes place 7 to 9 p.m. at 194 Gold Flat Road (Jacobson Chiropractic complex). Call Terri Harmon, 432- 8302, to reserve your seat because space is limited.
