Join us for Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, the second film in our International Noir screening and discussion Series, on Thursday, February 25 at 3:30 in SIPA 100.
The first installment of director Park Chan-wook’s revenge trilogy displays the same moral confusion and compelling narrative as his subsequent and more widely familiar Oldboy. Among Tarantino’s favorite directors, Chan-wook brings to the screen violence and emotional pain that are far from gratuitous, but rather are integrated into this story where good intentions yield disastrous results. Dr. Andy Strycharski, Director of FIU’s Film Studies Program, will lead a Q & A after the film.
Join us on the Frost Art Museum Lawn at 7:45 PM on Wednesday, February 17 for an evening of Music and Shakespeare.
DJ Maseo (De La Soul) will kick things off with a set, courtesy of BritWeek Miami. The set is followed by a wall cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, a freewheeling adaptation of Shakespeare’s play in the style of an old Hollywood musical. This is the last film of our Shakespeare and Film series, sponsored by FIU’s Student Government Association.
