Movie Nights

Films from Vietnam, China, Cuba and Mali highlight the 10th anniversary lineup of the University of Louisville’s International Film Series in February.

Free, public screenings will be in Ekstrom Library’s Chao Auditorium with moderators leading discussions afterward and refreshments provided. The communication department’s Institute for Intercultural Communication, Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society and the College of Arts and Sciences offer the film series.

The schedule includes:

– “Owl and the Sparrow,” Vietnam, 4 p.m. Feb. 7

– “Journey to the West,” China, 4 p.m. Feb. 8

– “Una Noche,” Cuba, 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. Feb. 10

– “Timbuktu,” Mali, 4 p.m. Feb. 11.

“The film festival brings to our community a rich variety of cinema from around the globe,” said Margaret D’Silva, festival founder and director of the Institute for Intercultural Communication. “Over the past nine years we have shown films from Morocco and India to Ecuador and Georgia. It is the perfect indoor event that lets you experience a slice of a distant culture smack-dab in the middle of winter.”
