Description

Join us for a discussion of the film 'Toni Erdmann' with Dr. Roberta Seret. Dr. Seret is the founder of International Cinema Education, an NGO of the United Nations that uses foreign film to bring the world to a classroom. As part of this event, attendees will be given special access to a presentation about Romania, where the film is set, and an excerpt of this award-winning foreign film. Read a review of the film.

Attendees are encouraged to watch the entire film on their own through a streaming service of their choice. The full film which is available for $3.99 on Amazon.com.

Together, we will explore Romania as a country in transition, and see how the people from an Eastern European country are trying to live, work, and become globalized Westerners.

This is part of a new series for World Affairs Forum in which we explore thought-provoking foreign films and engage with each other to think more deeply about the history, politics, and cultures of global hotspots.

For our readers, we encourage you to seek out Dr. Seret's new book "Gift of Diamonds," the first of the Transylvanian Triology, which is set in Transylvania, Romania.
