A Bengali film that premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City in January will be screened at Peninsula College’s Magic of Cinema at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at Maier Performance Hall on the Peninsula COllege campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles.


The film, "Shyamal Uncle Turns Off the Lights," is from Global Lens 2013, part of the Global Film Initiative, and is co-sponsored by the Port Townsend Film Institute and Goddard College.


Directed by Suman Ghosh, the film tells the story of an 80-year-old Kolkata retiree who is on a mission to get his neighborhood streetlights turned off after sunrise after he notices they stay on all day as well. The film is based on a real incident and the 80-year-old protagonist plays himself in the film.


Admission to the film is $5; Peninsula College students are admitted free-of-charge with a current student ID.


The next film in the series is "The Invisible War," screened on Nov. 8.
