Plan your Spring Film Series in February with three movies directed by Kathryn Bigelow: “K-19: The Widowmaker” on Feb. 8, “The Hurt Locker” on Feb. 15 and “Zero Dark Thirty” on Feb. 22.

“K-19: The Widowmaker” is about the first of many disasters that befell the nuclear Soviet missile submarine K-19 at the height of the Cold War, while “The Hurt Locker” follows an Iraq War explosive ordnance disposal team who are targeted by insurgents, and shows their psychological reactions to the stress of combat. The final movie, “Zero Dark Thirty,” dramatizes the nearly decade-long international manhunt for al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
