2010 Alumni Fall Film Series, Part 1 of 8: The Bicycle Thief

7:00 PM  - 9:30 PM
Wednesday Sep 22, 2010
John B. Davis Lecture Hall (JBD), Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

Join us for the 2010 Fall Alumni Film Series named "Global Justice" happening 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Sept. 22-Nov. 10. Our first film, The Bicycle Thief is the story of Antonio, an unemployed man in postwar Italy who finds a job that requires a bicycle. When it is stolen, Antonio and his son Bruno begin a frantic search and learn valuable lessons along the way.  Directed by Vittorio DeSica, this widely acclaimed Italian neorealist drama focuses on both the relationship between father and son and the larger framework of poverty and unemployment in the aftermath of World War II.

Global Justice participants will see eight films selected by Star Tribune critic Colin Covert '74 that take an international look at how films depict justice in various cultures, environments, and political frameworks.  The films for the series include: The Bicycle Thief (9/22), The Verdict (9/29), Incident at Oglala (10/6), The Castle (10/13), In the Name of the Father (10/20), Midnight Express (10/27), Crimes and Misdemeanors (11/3), The Postman Always Rings Twice (11/10).

The registration fee for the film series is $40 per person for the entire series or $5 per person for each film. Register online here
