'Bamboo Flowers' Shown at SU March 21SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University screens the Philippine film Bamboo Flowers 7 p.m. Monday, March 21, in the Great Hall of Holloway Hall.
Shown as part of the Bridges to the World international film series, the movie was postponed due to snow on its original screening date in February.
The 2013 film features a series of narrative vignettes — including a prodigal woman returning with her son in tow, a river tourist guide who has a domestic crisis and a young couple trying to establish their careers — that exemplify the universality of lives filled with dreams, hopes, fears and disappointment. It is shown in Filipino with English subtitles and sponsored by the Embassy of the Philippines.
SU joined World Artists Experiences, Inc. and Maryland’s Office of the Secretary of State International Division to present this year’s Bridges to the World series. Salisbury was one of five chosen screening locations in Maryland.
Hosted by SU’s Cultural Affairs Office, admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-543-6271 or visit the SU website at www.salisbury.edu.
