Global Hotspots Through Foreign Film: Stay-at-Home Edition
Seeing is believing, and foreign films give us the experience of traveling beyond borders without a plane ticket. The journey begins with the screening of eight award-winning foreign films that examine global hotspots in conflict. Through films including The Battle of Algiers, The Lady, Camille Claudel, Collective, Wild Tales, The Imitation Game, Sophie Scholl , and Buena Vista Social Club , you will visit Algeria, Myanmar, France, Romania, Argentina, United Kingdom, Germany, and Cuba. These award-winning, powerful films serve as a catalyst for our post-screening discussions about foreign film, as well as present-day issues in the film’s geopolitical region and how the film reflects different cultures and global issues. You will watch the films on your own and then meet online for lively and informative discussions.
