The Orinda International Film Showcase will begin showcasing its second film on Friday, Feb. 25, and it will have regular screenings through Thursday, March 3.
The film, “Illegal,” follows the story of an immigrant mother who becomes incarcerated in Belgium. The debut screening in Orinda will be the first time this film has been played in the United States. The film was part of the Cannes Film Festival last year.
The first film in the Orinda International Film Showcase, “Max Manus,” was such a huge draw that the Orinda Theatre chose to show it for an additional week.
