HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) — International and independent movies are set to take center stage throughout the winter as part of a western Michigan film series.

The Hope College Knickerbocker Winter Film Series kicks off Monday with a weeklong run of “Give Me Liberty,” a U.S. comedy written and directed by Russian emigre Kirill Mikhanovsky. The series is held at Holland's historic Knickerbocker Theatre, which is owned and operated by the college.

The series' four films each will be screened for a week, including the Mexican documentary “Midnight Family” from Feb. 3-8 and “Up There,” a drama filmed in the Upper Peninsula community of Norway, from Feb. 24-29. A fourth film scheduled for March 9-14 has yet to be selected.

The Knickerbocker was built in 1911, and Hope College bought it in 1988. Other uses include lectures, concerts and stage performances.
