Independent Film Night Thursday, July 14th @ 6:30 - If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle - a film by Florin Serban
Join us Thursday, July 14th for the latest installment of our Independent Film Series: If I Want to Whistle, I Whistle by Florin Serban (2010). A Romanian love story of sorts. The story takes place in a prison where the inmate protagonist, Silviu has only two weeks left to go before he’s released. But when his mother, who abandoned him long ago, returns and threatens to take his brother away — his brother whom he was forced, by their mother’s abandonment, to raise as a son — the two weeks begin to feel like eternity. He can find no quarter for help and is driven to a surprising act of defiance in a desperate grasp for freedom. This is a nuanced psychological drama you won’t want to miss. 93 mins. In Romanian with English subtitles. This screening made possible by the Friends of the Pollard Library.
