International Film Series

Following the success of last semester’s International Film series, the Diversity Club plans to carry the free movie nights over into the spring semester.  Each month, the club selects an international film for Chatt State’s students to watch- so far, the films have varied in genre, featuring comedies, documentaries, and dramas. Typically, a local restaurant correlating with the culture of the film caters the event.  The movie and the meal are both free, and some classes may even offer extra credit for attending the event.

On Thursday, February 9, the series makes its spring debut with the showing of Kombit: The Cooperative.  The documentary “documents the 5-year journey of two men and a socially responsible boot company as they set out to rebuild Haiti, one tree at a time.” Embargo 62, a local Cuban restaurant, will cater, keeping Chatt State happy and full with Cuban fare such as mariquitas (fried plantains), empanadas, and a variety of Cuban sandwiches.

Bring a friend, grab some food, and immerse yourself in a new culture for the evening!
