World Cinema Saturdays

This Saturday: BIOPICS

Biographical films, or “biopics,” have long been a staple of international cinema. Filmmakers are particularly fond of such stories that lend themselves to epic, often period, treatments (e.g., “Lawrence of Arabia”) though more intimate narratives do occasionally shine through. The films presented in this program examine the lives of iconic figures – with varying degrees of fidelity - from the realms of faith & spirituality, art, and sports.
