MASON CITY – The Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s 2013 Winter Film Series, Films in February, Movies in March, begins this Saturday, February 2 at 2:00 p.m. with Sweet Land. Admission is FREE and open to the public. Popcorn will be provided.

Set in 1920, Sweet Land follows the story of Inge Ottenberg who travels from Germany to rural Minnesota to meet the man destined to be her husband. Olaf is a Norwegian-American farmer looking for a wife to share his home on the Minnesota prairie, and with eligible women in short supply locally, he sends away for a mail-order bride. Inge soon arrives at Olaf’s doorstep, but while she’s pretty, smart, and amiable, he’s taken aback to discover she’s not Norwegian but German, which after several years of anti-German propaganda does not make her popular with her new neighbors. Bureaucracy and social morality cause major complications in their relationship.

Sweet Land is a 2005 feature film that is rated PG (brief, partial nudity, mild language) and is 110 minutes long. It is sponsored by a Friend of the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s Foreign and Independent Film Series.
