SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s Modern Languages Department hosts a film series to celebrate National Foreign Language Week Monday-Friday, March 1-5.
The German Club inaugurates the series with a screening of 1996’s Beyond Silence Monday, March 1. The film follows a woman who spends most of her life as a translator for her deaf-mute parents. When she becomes a successful clarinetist, she must choose between her music and her parents who cannot appreciate it.
The Spanish Club presents 2002’s Talk to Her Wednesday, March 3. The movie examines the lives of two men who share an odd friendship while caring for their comatose girlfriends.
