Festival ends with a flurry

"Beyond Exile: Central European Writing and Film," the Center for Bilingual/Bicultural Studies and Foreign Languages and Literatures' month-long festival of film, poetry and politics, concludes with a flurry of events on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Warsaw-born filmmaker Agnieszka Holland will screen and lead a discussion of her film "Julie Walking Home" in Room 10-250 at noon. The drama explores a story about a Canadian woman who cannot accept the impending death of her child from cancer. She embarks on a journey to Poland to seek the help of a Russian faith healer.

At 3:30 p.m. in Room 4-237A, a roundtable discussion will feature Visiting Professor Eva Hoffman, Assistant Professor Charity Scribner, culture critic Susan Suleiman, and author Dubravka Ugresic.

The day will conclude with "From Metaphor to Journalism: The Sorrows of Scribblers Without Walls," a talk by Romanian-born writer and National Public Radio columnist Andrei Codrescu, at 7 p.m. in Room 32-155 in the Stata Center.
