Foreign Film SIG


The Foreign Film SIG is a group that meets regularly to view and discuss great movies from all over the world.  

The films, dates and times will be posted on this Foreign Film SIG page and announced as events on the OLLI event page.  The event announcements will contain a little more information about the film, including directors and leading actors/actresses, and film photo. With input from all SIG members, the steering committee will select the next four films and schedule times, dates and locations. 

We would love to hear about your ideas for future film screenings.  Let us know your suggestions via our Foreign Film Bulletin Board. 

For more information about this SIG please contact Chris Guidette.

Here is the schedule of films for the next 4 months.  Go to the OLLI Events page to reserve your place or get the Zoom link.

Intent on growing expensive flowers, he conspires with his uncle, Cesar (Yves Montand), to gain access to a hidden spring on a neighboring property.
