Global Soul Film Night
Thursday, March 23 at 6:00pm to 10:00pm
New South, Film Screening Room 37th and O St., N.W., Washington
The Global Soul Subtitled Film Night takes as its starting point the words of philosopher Anthony Appiah on one step everybody can take towards widening their world view: 'See one subtitled film a month.'
We will be showing two films, each shown by one of the writers taking part in the Global Soul symposium. Ham Tran's Journey from the Fall has been chosen by 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction winner Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer. In his novel and in his essays Viet Thanh Nguyen takes the Hollywood film industry to task for its one sided portrayal of the Vietnam War, the only war whose history, he says, has been 'written by the losers.' The Judgement has been chosen by Kapka Kassabova, Bulgarian born author whose most recent book Borders takes readers on a tour of the changed history of the former Eastern Bloc borderlands. The film tells the story of a former border guard, who once shot people for attempting to leave the Eastern bloc and who now smuggles refugees the other way, across the same border.
