Global Focus: Danish film & video conference with director Lone Scherfig: "Italian for Beginners"

Wednesday, October 24, 2012
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Sanger Lecture Hall

This work was filmed in the style of the Dogme 95 movement, using handheld cameras and minimal effects. Unlike other films in this genre, it is a romantic comedy that follows the lives of three men and three women in a Danish town who end up together in an Italian class. They find that they all have much more in common than any of them previously imagined. Despite the sudden incapacitation of the Italian teacher, the class culminates with a romantic trip to Venice.
