    Second Annual Our World International Film Series Thursday May 20th - Ahlaam (Iraq ; Arabic with English Sub-Titles). Director Mohamed Al-Daradji literally risked life and limb to bring you the only film about the Iraq War told from the Iraqi point of view. Ahlaam is the tale of a doctor and two patients in a Baghdad mental institution running through rioting streets after their hospital is decimated. This is a powerful, bone chilling story of human beings struggling to make sense of unimaginable circumstances. Thursday May 27th - Departures (Japanese with English Subtitles), an Oscar winner in the Best Foreign Film Category. When his orchestra disbands, Daigo Kobayashi moves back to his hometown and takes a job preparing corpses for burial. Too embarrassed to admit his new career to his family, Daigo keeps his profession a secret, until he’s faced with the death of someone close to him. All films are suitable for teen and adults.
