Spring International Film Series: The Belier Family
Time: 7:30pm
Location: Olin B Lecture Hall

The Spring International Film Series begins with the French comedy/drama.

The Béliers are ordinary people: Rodolphe and Gigi are married, have two children and run their farm for a living. Ordinary people? Well, almost... since three of them, Dad, Mum and their son Quentin, are deaf. Which is not the case of the boy's big sister, Paula. And not only can she speak but her music teacher scouts her beautiful voice as well. He offers her to sit for the entrance exam of the Maîtrise de Radio France, a vocal elite choir in Paris. Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly. Paula, who hates the idea of betraying her parents and her brother, goes through a painful dilemma.

The International Film Series is free and open to the public. Olin B Lecture Hall is located one block east of 50th Street and Saint Paul Ave.
