Sept. 7, 2007

KALAMAZOO--The Kalamazoo Film Society presents "Once," winner of this year's Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, Friday through Sunday, Sept. 14-16, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

The film, which also claimed the 2007 Dublin International Film Festival Audience Award, is a musical drama that unfolds beneath a mesmerizing score. This "guy meets girl" tale about an Irish street musician and a young Czech immigrant chronicles a relationship that begins simply, with a shared love of music.
