The International Film Festival continues with the French film "Of Gods and Men."
Eight French Christian monks live in harmony with their Muslim brothers in a monastery perched in the mountains of North Africa in the 1990s. When a crew of foreign workers is massacred by an Islamic fundamentalist group, fear sweeps through the region. The army offers them protection, but the monks refuse. This film is loosely based on the life of the Cistercian monks of Tibhirine in Algeria, from 1993 until their kidnapping in 1996. Rated PG-13.
Olin A & B lecture halls are located in the Olin Hall of Science, one block east of 50th & St. Paul. All films and free and open to the public. Discussions follow each screening.
