FALL 2022

Sept 30-Nov 18

Alone Together

The International Film Festival returns this fall with a series of films centered on the theme of humanity’s search for meaning and belonging, and our collective struggle with loneliness, alienation, and the power of reconnection in turbulent times. The experience of loneliness can take us on a journey to powerlessness and disconnection. Through reconnecting to our deepest selves, to each other and to the community, we are able to change ourselves, and begin the transformation the world so desperately needs. Whether emerging from the collective experience of a pandemic, or the disorientation of social media, loneliness may seem like an idea without dramatic tension. But it’s a foundational part of the human experience, and one that filmmakers around the world have wrestled with for over a century.  All films will be screened at 6p.m. in the Hasley Hall theater room 101, with discussions to follow.
