|"My Life in Pink" film is Nov. 7|
The Global Visions film series presents "My Life in Pink" (Ma Vie en Rose) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7, in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl. This is a must see, and it is also important. Ludovic is waiting for a miracle. With seven-year-old certainty, he believes he was meant to be a little girl -- and that the mistake will soon be corrected. But where he expects the miraculous, Ludo finds only rejection, isolation and guilt -- as the intense reactions of family, friends, and neighbors strip away every innocent lace and bauble.
As suburban prejudices close around them, family loves and loyalties are tested in the ever-escalating dramatic turns of Alin Berliner's critically acclaimed first feature. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film and a favorite at festivals around the world, this unique film experience delivers magic of the rarest sort through a story of difference, rejection, and childlike faith in miracles.
The film is sponsored by the anthropology department and club. Admission is free.
