A post film discussion will take place with Gary Zaro, director of the International Film Festival at PVCC and Humanities Professor.
“The International Film Festival at PVCC gives us a glimpse into other cultures to see their uniqueness, history, and what is important to them,” Zaro said. “It is also a great look into the universality of all countries and cultures and allows us the opportunity to see that oftentimes we share more than we realize. Travel around the world with us as we explore innovative films and fascinating cultures.”
