Three Rivers Film Festival continues wide-ranging lineup

| Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009

The 28th annual Three Rivers Film Festival continues this week, with a full slate of films from all over -- from rural Pakistan ("Tahaan"), to World War II Poland ("No. 4 Street of Our Lady"), to Rwanda ("Munyurangabo"), to Pittsburgh ("In Service: Pittsburgh to Iraq").

Highlights include "Thirst," a bizarre vampire film from acclaimed Korean horror/thriller director Chan-wook Park, and "American Harmony," a documentary about the dramatic and strangely compelling world of competitive barbershop quartet singing.

Ben Russell and Joe Grimm will present a live performance of "Mazes," a multidisciplinary art project using "double 16mm projection, photo-sensitive and homebuilt electronics, film loops and manual manipulation of the projectors" to create a strange and beautiful cascade of light and sound.

Locally made films are featured, too -- "In Service" tells the story of Western Pennsylvanians serving during the war in Iraq, from surviving roadside bombs to interrogating Saddam Hussein.

Admission to most films is $8. Details: www.3rff.com .
