U of G hosts international film series
The University of Guelph is hosting its second annual international film series, “Beyond Hollywood,” with the first of six films to be shown Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. in Room 384 of the McLaughlin Library. All screenings are free and open to the public.
“Following the success of last year’s event, the series will retain a commitment to showing some of the most exciting examples of contemporary world cinema,” said English and theatre studies professor Paul Salmon, film series programmer. “The series provides viewers with a chance to see films that often have not enjoyed wide distribution, despite their high quality.”
The Other Side of the Bed by Spanish director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro runs Oct. 24. This romantic comedy focuses on the tribulations of Pedro, who’s trying to save his relationship with his girlfriend, Paula. The Other Side of the Bed has won several awards and was one of Spain’s top box office hits of 2002.
