When: Sun., Nov. 14, 2-5 p.m. 2021
Join us for a free screening of Jean Renoir's 1935 feature film Toni. 90 min. In French, Italian, and Spanish with English subtitles. This event is free and open to the public! The story follows the Italian migrant Antonio (“Toni”) whose tempestuous affairs with two women—the sweet and loyal Marie and the flirtatious and flighty Josefa--unleash a wave of tragedy. A time capsule of that period and a “marvel of poetic feeling,” the film also forces us to consider how migrants’ lives have not entirely changed and how economic precarity can affect gendered behaviors and romantic relationships.
