Foreign & Award Winning Films

1944, a film by Elmo Nüganen

October 16, 7 pm

Estonia’s official Oscar submission and a mega-hit on home turf, 1944 centers on the bloodiest battle on World War II’s Eastern Front. Estonian soldiers find themselves torn between two mighty powers with some heading towards the Red Army and others finding themselves pledging allegiance to the Waffen SS. Each has their own reasons for choosing their sides they do – some believe in a better future for their beloved Estonia, others are simply trying to survive a war. But the stage is set for a conflict in which countryman battling countryman and brother fighting brother becomes a painful inevitability. 1944 is a thrilling and emotional war story that shows the hopes, aims and drama of the Estonian men caught between two forces as objectively as possible.  English; Original Estonian with English subtitles. Not rated.


Glory, a film by Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov

October 23, 7 pm

Tsanko Petrov, a railroad worker, finds millions of leva on the train tracks. He decides to turn the money over to the police, for which the state rewards him with a new wristwatch that soon stops working. Meanwhile, Julia Staikova, head of the PR department of the Ministry of Transport, loses Petrov’s old watch, a family relic. Here starts his desperate struggle to recover both his old watch and his dignity. Bulgarian with English subtitles. Not rated.


God’s Slave a film by Joel Novoa Schneider

October 30, 7 pm

Based on the actual events of a 1994 bombing in Buenos Aires still making headlines today, GOD’S SLAVE follows Ahmed, trained since childhood as an Islamic terrorist now assigned to execute a suicide bombing at a synagogue, and David, the cold-blooded Israeli special agent who will stop at nothing to prevent the attack. But neither man is defined solely by their extremist views. Ahmed, posing as a doctor, lives happily with his wife and young son; though David’s marriage is on the rocks, he remains devoted to his wife and daughter. With time running out before the attack, David zeros in on Ahmed as a suspect, his investigation culminating in violent, if unexpected, consequences. Spanish with English subtitles. Not rated.
