‘Land of Mine’ to play Library Cinema Series in Aspen

Staff report

The Oscar-nominated German film “Land of Mine” will play at the Pitkin County Library Cinema series this weekend.

The film dramatizes a grim episode at the end of the Second World War, when teenage German POWs were forced to clear the Danish coastline of the mines that Hitler had ordered be placed there.

The film will play Saturday and Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

The series has announced three additional films for the series this month.

Carla Simon’s “Summer 1993,” which played Aspen Film’s Academy Screenings in December, will play July 14 and 15. The autobiographical drama tells the story of a young Spanish girl coming of age after her mother dies of AIDS.

India’s “Becoming Who I Was” will screen Saturday, July 21, and Sunday, July 22. It features a boy and his elderly godfather on a grueling and improbable trek across India to return a young monk to his rightful monastery before it’s late.

And the Coen Brothers’ classic “The Big Lebowski” will close out the month July 28 and 29.

Tickets are $10 and include free popcorn. More info at pitcolib.org.
