International Film Festival: Le Havre

Saturday, February 8, 2014 - 2:00pm
Location: 
Olin A & B Lecture Halls

The third day of our International Film Festival begins with the Finnish comedy/drama, Le Havre.

In this warmhearted portrait of the French harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee, Idrissa, into the path of Marcel Marx, a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoeshiner. With innate optimism and the unwavering support of his community, Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation.

 All international film festival films will be shown in the Olin A and B lecture halls, located one block east of 50th Street and St. Paul Ave. All films will be subtitled in English. They are free and open to the public.

Please note some films contain content and language suitable for mature audiences only.
