Cosponsored by the Fernand Braudel Center for the Study of Economies, Historical Systems and Civilizations; the Office of the Dean, Graduate School; the Office of the Dean, Harpur College; and the departments of Anthropology, History and Sociology. This event is free and open to the public. Call 777-4924 or e-mail the Fernand Braudel Center

Harpur Cinema to screen “Like Someone in Love”| March 7, 2014
Like Someone in Love
(Abbas Kiarostami, 2012, Japan/France, 109 min.) will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 7 and Sunday, March 9, in LH-6. This film finds one of our favorite globe-trotting Iranian filmmakers in Japan telling the story of a young hooker rescued by an older man. As A. O. Scott in the New York Times
suggests, “sentimental fantasies hover [over the couple]…and it’s not impossible that both Takashi and Akiko have seen Pretty Woman.” But the resemblance ends there. Kiarostami, as ever, is more interested in what lies outside the frame than what is within it and, as Scott continues, “every shot — everything you see, and everything you don’t — imparts a disturbing and thrilling sense of discovery,” refreshing a well-worn fairy-tale as only Kiarostami can do. Nominated: Cannes, 2012 (Palme d’or); Asian Film Awards (Best Director 2013). Introduction by Tomonari Nishikawa, assistant professor of cinema.
Admission is $4. For questions or information, contact Nancy Wlostowski at 777-4998 or send an e-mail
