Berkeley Heights Public Library will show "Korkoro" on Thursday, August 2 at 7 p.m. as part of its Summer International Film Festival. In this World War II drama, a tightly-knit family of Gypsies journeys through occupied France, trying to avoid the violent Vichy patrols. Along the way a young French orphan named Claude joins their ranks, and is initiated into their culture. Under the tutelage of acrobatic wild man Taloche, Claude learns to love his adoptive family. As the Vichy government passes a law restricting their movement, they avoid capture with the help of a local mayor and schoolteacher, who also have ties to the Resistance. But the longer they avoid arrest, the more dangerous their lives become.
This unrated film is in French, German and Romany with English subtitles. It is free and open to all. The door to the meeting room will be opened at 6:45 p.m. The Library is located at 290 Plainfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.
