Friday 30 August 8.30pm Channel 039

Selma is a Czech immigrant, a single mother working in a factory in rural America. Her salvation is her passion for music, specifically the all-singing, all-dancing numbers found in classic Hollywood musicals. But Selma harbours a sad secret: she is losing her eyesight and her son Gene stands to suffer the same fate if she can't save enough money to secure him an operation. When a neighbour falsely accuses Selma of stealing his savings, the drama of her life escalates to a tragic finale. Nominated for an Oscar in 2001 for Best Music, Original Song. Winner of Best Actress and the Palme D’Or at Cannes Film Festival 2000. Starring Bjork, Catherine Deneuve & David Morse. Directed by Lars Von Trier. A critics favourite and multi award winner. 2002.
