The OCU Film Institute will continue its 36th year of international films, with the theme “Picturing Reconciliation.”
The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson is the next film in the series and will be shown at 2 p.m. Feb. 4 in Kerr-McGee Auditorium in Meinders School of Business.
“It tells the story of the British rock guitarist, Wilko Johnson, who discovers he has pancreatic cancer and must come to terms with it,” said Dr. Tracy Floreani, director of the Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film and Literature.
“It is full of homages to classic rock films but also has footage of Johnson’s final years of touring.”
A discussion among the audience will follow the film.
The lineup for the series is:
– The Salesman on Feb. 18,
– Boy on March 4, and
– The Diving Bell and The Butterfly on March 18.
“I highly recommend the film Boy,” Floreani said. “It’s extremely funny and explores indigenous culture.”
Hannah Boyens, theater and performance sophomore, said she is interested in coming to the next film and is planning to continue exploring the series.
“I love the theme and movies,” Boyens said. “It’s a great time to sit down and discuss art that I wouldn’t be able to see in other movie theaters that I go to.”
