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, May 20 at 7 p.m. EST, we will stream the French comedy-drama, "Le Havre."

Marcel Marx leads a simple life based as a shoeshiner with his wife, Arletty. As Arletty suddenly becomes seriously ill, Marcel's path crosses with that of an underage illegal immigrant from Africa. Marcel and friendly neighbors and other townspeople help to hide him from the police. The police inspector may, or may not, be hot on their heels
