World Wide Cinema
World Wide Cinema, MPL’s free monthly film series of first-run independent and foreign films is back! Screenings are held the second Friday of each month in the Cooper Room on Level Four. All films are shown in the original language with subtitles. Doors are open from 6:15 – 6:45 and the film starts at 6:30; late entry is not allowed. Attendees must enter from the library’s parking garage, all other doors are locked.
June’s selection is a special screening and post-film discussion of the movie “Hana-bi” from Japan. Dr. Matthew Strohl will moderate the discussion. This program is part of the series Re-Imagining Death: Conversations on Dying, Loss, and Grief in partnership with UM’s Humanities Institute. Feeling responsible for the shattered lives of his loved ones, beleaguered police detective Nishi takes desperate measures to try and set things right in a world gone wrong. With his wife suffering from leukemia and his partner paralyzed from a brutal gangster attack, Nishi borrows money from a yakuza loan shark and then robs a bank to clear his debt. The yakuza, however, are not so easily bought off, sending Nishi down a road paved with violence. Running time is 103 minutes.
