Hi all...

I can't help but forward this to you. I'm a big movie buff, especially independent films...so for those of you who like film stories, check out the Athena Cinema's upcoming films. Many of them have themes related to our work.

Also take a look at their full schedule because the Athena often schedules free one-night film  showings sponsored by various organizations on campus. The Athena is a sweet little treasure nestled on Court Street. We are lucky to have it.

Free Admission

When a young Egyptian woman travels from her village to Cairo to add her voice to the tens of thousands of Egyptians demanding an end to 60 years of military rule, she is arrested, beaten, and tortured by security forces and later punished and imprisoned by her family for daring to speak out. Unbreakable, she sets out in a search for freedom and social justice in a country in the grips of a power struggle, where there is little tolerance for the likes of her. Buoyed by the other activists she meets along the way, Hend Nafea's story mirrors the trajectory of the Arab Spring-from the ecstasy of newfound courage to the agony of shattered dreams.In the end, despite crushing setbacks, it is resilience that sustains the hope for reform even in the darkest hours of repression.

A Film By Ohio University Eminent Scholar, Rajko Grlić
November 15th, 7:00pm

Four very different people live in the same building but avoid each other because of differences in how they live their lives, what they believe in, and where they come from. They would probably never exchange a word, but misfortune pushes them towards each other. Their lives entangle in ways that profoundly challenge deep-held beliefs and prejudices surrounding material status, sexual orientation, nationality and religion. Slowly, and even painfully, they begin to open up to each other and recognize the essential humanity each of them possesses.

Director Rajko Grlić, Ohio eminent scholar in film, was awarded The Montreal World Film Festival's prestigious Grand Prize of the Americas, the top award of the festival, for his feature film The Constitution (Ustav Republike Hrvatske) which he directed and co-wrote with Ante Tomić.The event is a fundraiser for an OHIO graduate student film project. Introduction by Dr. Ruth Bradley.
