7:00pm Weicholz Global Film Series: The Translator

Pre-film talk with Dr. John Pfeifer begins at 7pm, with the film beginning at approximately 7:30pm.

In Spanish and Russian with English subtitles

Directed by the the Barriuso brothers, the two sons of the film’s real world protagonist, The Translator tells the true story of a Russian Literature professor at the University of Havana who is ordered to work as a translator for the child victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster when they are sent to Cuba for medical treatment in the late 1980s. Torn from the abstract world of academia and forced into the relentlessly real world of medicine, the college professor must find a way to connect with the kids and serve as an empathic translator between the doctors and the children’s parents.
