2016 International Screenings Program
Laugh and the World Laughs With You…
Cinema/Chicago, together with the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners, presents this free weekly film series that celebrates the richness and diversity of international and independent filmmaking.
This year, we’re proud to showcase comedy from around the world. These 18 films exemplify different styles and modes of comedy, ranging from satire and dark humor to slapstick and dramedy. Together they demonstrate the power of comedy to cross cultures, as we all laugh out loud together. Please arrive early as seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to theater capacity. Films are unrated. Viewer discretion is advised.
Discussions led by cultural leaders, scholars and film critics will be held after select screenings.
All screenings take place Wednesdays at 6:30p.m. the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington St., 2nd Floor North)
