A CHANGE OF HEART
Sunday, March 27, 7 p.m.
Based on a true story and adapted from Calais mon amour by Béatrice Huret, a recent widow who finds herself volunteering at a shelter for refugees. After she befriends and falls in love with an Iranian teacher who fled illegally to Calais, she begins to question the prejudices she is accustomed to encountering, challenging the laws of her country.
Monday, May 16, 7 p.m.
A perfect bourgeois couple from Poland rent a holiday home on a sunny Italian island, but it quickly becomes anything but a stress-free vacation, when the two witness a terrible accident from their balcony. When the investigation by the local authorities uncovers the revelation of CCTV footage from the day of the incident, it precipitates a crumbling of their ever-shifting morals. Expertly observed and carefully crafted with echoes of Ruben Ostlund’s Force Majeure. Premiered at the 2021 Toronto Film Festival.
