Movies You May Have Missed Series: “The Farewell”

July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This film series is presented by the Senior College of Belfast in partnership with the Belfast Free Library. Free and open to all.

The Farewell (2019) PG Comedy, drama, in English, Mandarin, Japanese and Italian, with subtitles. 100 min.

A headstrong Chinese-American woman (Awakafina) returns to China when her beloved grandmother is diagnosed with terminal cancer, as she struggles with her family’s decision to keep grandma in the dark about her own illness and as they all stage an impromptu wedding to see grandma one last time.

Many films were not shown in Belfast while the Colonial Theatre was closed. As a break from summer blockbusters, this series is a catch-up with what we might have missed.

Three comedy/dramas have been chosen from around the world: China, Bhutan, and “merrie olde” England.

Paul Sheridan will offer a short introduction and a discussion at the end of each movie. More information here.

Paul Sheridan helped run “Friday Night Films” at the Belfast Library for several years. This continues in that tradition. Paul  has been a lifelong movie buff and has taught many courses on photography and film at Belfast Senior College.
