Thursday, March 3, 2022, 7 pm: Dr. Heidi Holst-Knudsen will present on the SECOND IN OUR VIRTUAL FILM DISCUSSION SERIES ON IMMIGRATION: LE HAVRE (Kaurismaki, 2011) - followed by open discussion. We will not focus on pedagogical uses of LE HAVRE, but rather the film’s deeper meanings. The first film discussed in our series - led by Dr. Jasmine Narcisse in November - was Lioret’s WELCOME. This film is very much worth seeing, if only to make comparisons with our second film in the series, Kaurismaki’s LE HAVRE.
