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.

 

August

August’s film is “Playground” from Belgium. The everyday reality of grade school is seen from a child’s-eye-view as an obstacle course of degradation and abuse. Following 7-year-old Nora and her big brother Abel, we see Nora struggling to fit in before finding her place on the schoolyard. One day, she notices Abel being bullied by other kids, and though she rushes to protect him by warning their father, Abel forces her to remain silent, while he endures more humiliation and harassment by his peers. Running time is 72 minutes.

 

September

September’s selection is a special screening and post-film discussion of the movie After Life from Japan. Dr. Brian Dowdle will moderate a post-film discussion. This program is part of the series Re-Imagining Death: Conversations on Dying, Loss, and Grief in partnership with UM’s Humanities Institute. If you could choose only one memory to hold on to for eternity, what would it be? That’s the question at the heart of Hirokazu Kore-eda’s bittersweet fantasia in which the recently deceased find themselves in a limbo realm where they must select a single cherished moment from their life to be recreated on film for them to take into the next world. Running time is 119 minutes.
