Honors Common Reading – Children of Heaven
September 8, 2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
On Friday, September 8, 2017 at 2:00 p.m., incoming Honors students, faculty, and staff will meet in the BLUU Auditorium for the inaugural gathering of the “Honors Common Reading.” This year, we’ll view the film “Children of Heaven” by Majid Majidi. This 90 minute film with English subtitles is the first Iranian film to receive an Academy Award nomination. The story centers around a young brother and sister, who find themselves secretly sharing a pair of shoes after the girl’s shoes are lost. The film provides a candid view of everyday life for this family and offers insight into Iranian culture, specifically family dynamics, discipline, relationships, and values. After the screening there will be a discussion lead by a panel of faculty members.
