Berkeley Public Library’s film series “Super Cinema” is back! Each month we explore a different theme or genre on Friday afternoons at 3 p.m.at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge (at Shattuck), in the 3rd floor Community Meeting Room. In April, explore Animation Adults Love. We begin with Grave of the Fireflies (1988) on April 5th, in which a brother and sister struggle to survive hunger and the firebombing of Kobe, Japan during World War II. On April 12, a grandmother searches for her kidnapped grandson with the help of 1930’s-era singing group in The Triplets of Belleville (2003). April 19 takes us to the Middle East for Waltz with Bashir (2008), as a former Israeli soldier attempts to recover his memories about service in the 1982 Lebanon War. We’ll finish the month with director Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), featuring George Clooney as the title character, who steals nightly from wealthy farmers who try in vain to do away with him. May brings Spellbinding Documentaries, including Inside Job, Spellbound and Taxi to the Dark Side.
