|UND Global Visions Films series continues with "The Chorus"|
UND's department of Anthropology's Global Visions Film series will play "The Chorus" at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 20, in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl.
"The Chorus" features a struggling musician, Mr. Clement, who after giving up on fame, takes a job as a teacher at a school for troubled boys. Unexpectedly, his class is full of young boys who enjoy breaking the rules. After an initial discipline struggle, Mr. Clement discovers his students would be better off learning the art of music instead of iron fisted discipline. After the boys open up to him, they are faced with the biggest challenge of their lives...musical competition.
"Engineered for maximum smiles, and a truckload of tissues, 'The Chorus' uses Pierre, a towheaded troublemaker with reedy limbs, to confirm that good inevitably triumphs over evil." - New York Times
