Folsom Film Society presents double bill

By From page B3 | December 03, 2012

The Folsom Film Society is presenting a double feature for one admission price on Thursday, Dec. 6 at Three Stages Theater, 10 College Parkway in Folsom.

“Valley of Saints” is screening at 6:30 p.m.

Widely considered to be the crown jewel of Kashmir, Dal Lake is a sprawling aquatic community where erupting political violence often distracts from the natural beauty.

Gulzar, a young, working-class boatman, plans to skip town with his best friend in search of a better life, but a weeklong military curfew derails their departure.

Forced to wait it out, Gulzar takes a job assisting a pretty scientist named Asifa. As they navigate the floating landscape, collecting water samples for an environmental study, an unlikely relationship blossoms between the two.

When Asifa’s research reveals harmful pollutants, Gulzar realizes that the ecology of the lake and an entire way of life face an alarming threat, and everything in his own life begins to take on a new hue.

The other film “All Together” starts at 8 p.m.

Five aging friends decide to move in together in Stéphane Robelin’s crowd-pleasing comedy, starring Jane Fonda (in her first French-language film since Godard’s 1972 “Tout Va Bien,” Geraldine Chaplin and Claude Rich.

Comfortably retired, they hire a handsome graduate student as a live-in caretaker and rediscover the joys of “communal” living — but when old secrets and long-simmering jealousies emerge, discord among the group begins to grow.
