Passport Thursdays – Outdoor International Film Series
Aug 9 2018
Join us Thursday evenings, 7 – 10pm on the lawn in front of the Queens Museum for Passport Thursdays, our annual outdoor international film series.
This year we’ve selected a series of films that explore the classic road movie genre – roadtrips, travel (mis)adventures or life-changing journeys, this theme resonates across cultures and ages. Over the course of five Thursdays, the featured films will take us to India, Ecuador, Ghana, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.
Come early to get your body moving with Masala Bhangra: Bollywood dance workout classes from 7 – 7:45, then get cozy on our picnic blankets for the feature film starting at 8pm.
*In case of rain, all programs will take place inside the museum!
FILM: On the Road, Somewhere / Algún Lugar *, Guillermo Zouain, USA / Dominican Republic, 71 min, 2015, in Spanish with English ST
After finishing high school, teenagers Oliver, Moises, and Hemingway go on an emotive journey through the Dominican Republic in search of their life calling. Politics, pop culture and national identity emerge as they embark on a carefree road trip before college, when the first steps into adulthood begin and everything they know will change.
