Discover another gem

Posted October 26, 2006

"Human Touch" was shot in Australia and southern France. It is the 21st feature film by world-renowned auteur Paul Cox, inspired by his preoccupation with matters of the human heart. "Human Touch" explores intimacy and sexuality in a story of love between Anna and David, a singer and a painter who are tested when a wealthy gentleman enters Anna's life. Anna embarks on an intimate journey of self-discovery and physical fulfillment to finally arrive at a deeper, more profound understanding of the human need for touch. Film critic Roger Ebert says "Human Touch" is "inspired and brilliant."

Vineyard audiences will have the opportunity to vote to determine the $50,000 prizewinner of this undiscovered gem series presented in association with the California Film Institute. Winners are to be announced in December at awards presentations in New York and California.

"Human Touch" will be shown on Sunday, Oct. 29, 4 pm and 7 pm, at Island Theater, Circuit Avenue, Oak Bluffs. Tickets are $6.
