Oklahoma City University Film Institute’s series continues Jan. 27 with A Separation, the Iranian drama that won last year’s Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. As with all titles scheduled for this season, themed “Escape from Freedom,” admission is free.
When Oklahoma Gazette reviewed A Separation in its original area release last March, my colleague Phil Bacharach called it “a tense and absorbing domestic drama packed with the suspense of a Hitchcock flick.” He has pretty good taste; isn’t that recommendation enough?
The remainder of the lineup includes:
• Treeless Mountain (2008, Korea), Feb. 10
• The Kid with a Bike (2011, France), Feb. 24
• Breaker Morant (1980, Australia), March 10
Screenings take place in the Kerr McGee Auditorium of Meinders School of Business on the OCU campus, 2501 N. Blackwelder. For more information, call 208-5472 or visit okcu.edu/film-lit. —Rod Lott
