Join us Sunday, March 19 - Thursday, March 23 for a Foreign Languages Film Series organized by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and the College of Liberal Arts, in collaboration with the Zinema 2 Theater at the Zeitgeist Arts Center. We will be presenting six international films (with subtitles) organized around the theme of "Building Bridges." Our kickoff event starts on March 19, with a double feature with films at 4:30 PM and 7 PM. Over the following 4 nights, each section of the department will screen a film introduced by a guest speaker.

All screenings are at Zinema 2 Theater, 222 East Superior St., in downtown Duluth, and all screenings are free to the public! After each film, we will ask the audience to join faculty and students in the Atrium above the theater for snacks and an informal discussion.
