Description

Letter to Dad - CandleSunday, November 10, 2:00 pm
Second Sunday Culture Film
A Letter to Dad (2011)
Serbian filmmaker Srdjan Keca looks through the few boxes of belongings left behind by his late father. He finds forgotten photos, letters, and home videos, which take the film back to 1970s Yugoslavia, when his parents became lovers. But the journey through the years, to family members, lost friends, and places, reveals the lingering horrors of the recent Balkan wars still tearing people and families apart. After the film, Meta Mazaj, Senior Lecturer, Penn Cinema Studies, speaks about the relationship between film and nationalism as reflected in contemporary Balkan cinema. Sponsored by the Philadelphia Film Society, Penn Cinema Studies, the Penn Humanities Forum, Penn Slavic Languages and Literatures, and the University Museum Library. Free with Museum admission.
