International Film Series: The Other Side of Hope

When: Tue., Feb. 20, 7 p.m. 2018

This wry, melancholic comedy from Aki Kaurismäki — a clear-eyed response to the current refugee crisis — follows two people searching for a place to call home. Displaced Syrian Khaled lands in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged salesman Wikström leaves behind his wife and job and buys a conspicuously unprofitable seafood restaurant.

Price: $5
