Film

Welcome

When: Wed., March 10, 7 p.m. 2010

Stories of struggle and immigration are as American as they come, but the French lay claim to some of those tales as well. Welcome, directed by Philippe Lioret, takes viewers through the tribulations of Bilal, a Kurdish refugee finding his way across Europe trying to join his girlfriend in England. The last barrier in Bilal's journey: the English Channel, across which Bilal must swim. The film won Best Picture at France's 2010 Lumiere Awards, and apparently features a standout film debut by Firat Ayverdi as Bilal. At 7 tonight, see it at the Lon Chaney Theater (221 E. Kiowa St., ifsoc.org); seats are $5 to $6. — Nick Chambers

Price: $5-$6
