Movement & Identity in European Cinema
UC Film Series – Europe at the Esquire
Join us for three award-winning films about Europe at The Esquire, with intros and post-film Q&A sessions led by University of Cincinnati faculty.
This series brings together UC professors to introduce and lead post-film Q&A sessions on three award-winning European films that offer insights into the very contemporary topic of (im)migration and identity. From The Baltic to the Balkans, passing through France, we will consider what cinema has to say about post-1989 population flows and debates on topics such as assimilation, religion, and borderless mobility.
Wednesday, 10/28 7:30 – Todd Herzog (Department of German Studies and Film & Media Studies) – presents and leads a Q&A on Leningrad Cowboys Go America (Aki Kaurismäki, 1989, Finland/Sweden)
Wednesday, 11/4 7:30 – Ethan Katz (Department of History) – Little Jerusalem (Karin Albou, 2005, France)
Wednesday, 11/11 7:30 – Sunnie Rucker-Chang (Department of German Studies), Grbavica: the Land of My Dreams (Jasmila Zbanic,2006, Bosnia/Germany)
