Our International Film Series has gone virtual! No matter where you are, join the Office of International Affairs for a virtual monthly screening of international films for free.

Films will be screened every third Thursday of the month.

On Thursday, June 17 at 7 p.m. EDT, we will stream the Polish drama, "Corpus Christi."

Daniel experiences a spiritual transformation in a detention center. Although his criminal record prevents him from applying to the seminary, he has no intention of giving up his dream and decides to minister a small-town parish.

We will watch the film simultaneously through Discord, a free service that will allow us to watch the film together and participate in live discussions. You will create a Discord account ahead of time, then follow the prompts to join the Stream Room for a video chat before and after the film. You can access Discord at

Guest Speaker: Randy Rowe is a PhD student in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures who is a specialist on Polish film. He will introduce the film and share background information on Polish language and the role of the Catholic church in Polish history. He will also be available for a Q&A after the screening.
