NOTE: We will meet in the downstairs area. You do not need to be a member of the Washington DC Film Society to attend. NOTE THAT THIS MONTH's CINEMA LOUNGE IS ONLINE.
Monday, August 17, 2020 at 7:00pm (ONLINE via ZOOM)
TOPIC: International (Foreign Language) Films
Earlier this year Parasite became the first non-English language film to win a Best Picture Oscar. Parasite also won for direction and screenplay. In 2019, Roma, another non-English language film, snagged 10 nominations and three wins including Best Director.
Are these films' successes a blip or a new direction? With streaming, it's easier than ever to see films from around the world. U.S. audiences were too often scared off by subtitles in the past. Are they now embracing the films the larger world has to offer? What are your favorite non-English language films? Do you gravitate toward any particular nations' movies?
Please RSVP to email@example.com and you'll get the Zoom link 1-2 days before the discussion.
