- Global Lens Film Series: Engaging World Cinema Global Lens Film Series – Join us for a screening of this 2011 film from Iran, Mourning (Soog) by director Morteza Farshbaf. From a black screen, a man and a woman are heard arguing and hurrying away from a house. Afterward, the screen radiates brilliant green countryside, traversed by a small black car. Subtitles relay a conversation by another man and woman, but now we hear no voices. Kamran and Sharareh, a deaf couple, are driving Sharareh’s young nephew, Arshia, back home to Tehran. Something terrible has happened. But the couple keep the news from Arshia, debating his future in a language not as private as they believe, and turning a car trip into a subtly humorous and deeply compassionate meditation on communication and emotional disability. (85 minutes; Persian with English subtitles) Main Library, Lower Level, Koret Auditorium, 3-5 p.m. 100 Larkin St.(at Grove)
