Fall International Film Series Concludes With Ulysses' Gaze
SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s Fall International Film Series concludes with Ulysses’ Gaze 7 p.m. Monday, November 24, in Henson Science Hall Room 243.
Harvey Keitel plays a Greek-American film director who travels across the war-torn post-communist Balkans, searching for two reels of undeveloped film shot by two pioneers of Greek cinema, the Manakis brothers. Directed by Theo Angelopoules, the film was the Grand Jury Prize at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.
According to Dr. James Welsh, co-founder of the SU journal Literature/Film Quarterly, Ulysses’ Gaze is a remembrance of the end of a tumultuous era in European history.
“It has to do with the return of a filmmaker to his homeland after the collapse of communism,” Welsh said.
The screening is free and the public is cordially invited. The series is part of SU’s focus on Eastern European culture this fall.
