Film at Fulton Series Returns to SU This Spring

By SU Public Relations

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts hosts this spring’s “Film at Fulton” series 7 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month in the Herman van Apeldoorn Film Center, Fulton Hall Room 111.

A panel discussion with experts and enthusiasts follows each screening. Films include:

  • February 7 – Hi, Mom: The deeply personal directorial debut of Chinese comedienne Jia Ling was an enormous word-of-mouth success upon its release, becoming the third highest-grossing film ever in China. After her mother is fatally injured in a car accident, grief-stricken Jia Xiaoling (played by Ling) finds herself transported back 20 years, where she becomes her mother’s close friend and embarks on plan to assuage her regret at not having been a better daughter. 
  • March 6 – No Bears: Called one of the world’s great cinema artists, Jafar Panahi has crafted self-reflexive works about artistic, personal and political freedom for the past three decades, despite being banned from filmmaking by the Iranian government since 2010. In No Bears – completed shortly before his imprisonment in 2022 – he plays a fictionalized version of himself, a dissident filmmaker who relocates to a rural border town to direct a film remotely in nearby Turkey and finds himself embroiled in a local scandal.
  • April 3 – Tulpan: Winner of the Prix Un Certain Regard at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, acclaimed Kazakh documentarian Sergey Dvortsevoy’s first narrative feature is a mélange of tender comedy, ethnographic drama and wildlife extravaganza. Young dreamer Asa returns to his sister’s nomadic brood on the desolate Hunger Steppe to begin a hardscrabble career as a shepherd. Before he can tend a flock of his own, however, he must win the hand of the only eligible bachelorette for miles – his alluringly mysterious neighbor, Tulpan.

Admission is free and the public is invited. Those planning to park on campus must register in advance for a free parking pass.
