International Film Series features stories of oppression and liberation

'Kimjongilia' cover

NAU’s International Film Series will return Tuesday, Jan. 27 with N.C. Heikin’s Kimjongilia, a documentary about North Korea. Free films will be screened most Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. Jan. 27 to April 29 in the Liberal Arts building, room 120.

This semester’s theme of “Oppression and Liberation” is inspired by a College of Arts & Letters’ discipline-wide series commemorating the end of World War II and the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps 70 years ago this spring.

“This mix of feature films and documentaries from Asia, Europe, and Latin America demonstrates the strength and ingenuity of human cultures to surmount oppressive forces from outside and from within ourselves,” said Judith Costello, series organizer.
