Bud Werner Memorial Library’s free foreign film series continues at 7 p.m. today at the Chief Theater with “My Love, Don’t Cross That River,” an international film festival award-winner from South Korea directed by Jin Moyoung.

Winner of the best documentary film award at the Los Angeles Film Festival and a blockbuster in its native Korea, “My Love, Don’t Cross That River” presents an unforgettable story of true love that transcends both generations and cultures.
