  • Apr. 19th, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM: The International Film Series presents "We Are the Best!"
    @ Trabant University Center Theater:
    Mohawk-sporting Klara (Mira Grosin) and her best friend Bobo (Mira Barkhammar) are 13-year-old rebels looking for a cause in early '80s Stockholm. Despite having no instruments-or discernible musical talent-the two put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band, recruiting their shy, classical guitar-playing schoolmate Hedvig (Liv LeMoyne) as the third wheel. With tender affection for his young characters and the period in which his film is set, Moodysson paints an ebullient and sharply observant portrait of DIY spirit and growing up different. All IFS film screenings are free and open to the public.
  • Apr. 24th to Apr. 26th: Colored Conventions in the Nineteenth Century and the Digital Age
    @ Morris Library and Delaware Historical Society:
    The Colored Conventions Project, hosted at the University of Delaware, seeks to bring the buried history of the nineteenth-century colored conventions movement to digital life. Beginning in 1830 and continuing past the Civil War, once captive and free African Americans came together in national and state political conventions to strategize about how to achieve legal, labor and educational justice. The delegates to these meetings include the most well-known—if mostly male— writers, organizers, church leaders, editors and entrepreneurs in the canon of early African-American leadership: Richard Allen, Frederick Douglass and Henry Highland Garnet, Abraham and Mary Ann Shadd (Cary), George Downing, Charles Ray and others as well as those who have been all but forgotten. This symposium seeks to pose questions about the ways in which scholarly paradigms shift when the decades-long colored convention movement is considered with abolition as a principal axis that orders historical understandings of nineteenth-century racial and justice movements.
  • Apr. 26th, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM: The International Film Series presents "Bad Hair"
    @ Trabant University Center Theater:
    Junior is a nine-year-old boy who has stubbornly curly hair, or "bad hair." He wants to have it straightened for his yearbook picture, like a fashionable pop singer with long, ironed hair. This puts him at odds with his mother Marta, a young, unemployed widow. Overwhelmed by what it takes to survive in the chaotic city of Caracas, Marta finds it increasingly difficult to tolerate Junior's fixation with his looks. The Chicago Reader calls this film an "accomplished piece of social realist filmmaking, clear-eyed but tender." All IFS film screenings are free and open to the public.
