‘Hedgehog’ opens 2013 Green Bay Film Society series

The Green Bay Film Society’s Spring International Film Series begins 7 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 16) at the Neville Public Museum. The first screening is the 2009 French film The Hedgehog, based on the best-selling novel The Elegance of the Hedgehog. The plot follows Paloma, a serious and highly articulate but deeply bored 11-year-old who has decided to kill herself on her 12th birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she questions and documents her life, drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations about the world around her. Ultimately, she meets some kindred spirits who inspire her to question her outlook on life. Admission is free for Brown County residents. Sponsored by Humanistic Studies, Brown County Library, the Neville and the Green Bay Film Society. More information.
