Frostburg State University's 2000-2001 International Film Series continues with "The Truce " on Tuesday, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m. in Lane Center room 201. The series is sponsored by Center Stage and the Lane Center & Campus Activities.
A biographical drama, "The Truce" depicts the nine-month journey of Jewish Italian chemist and writer Primo Levi to his home after being released from Auschwitz. His circuitous route, including Poland, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Austria and Germany, provides the setting for Levi's "rediscovery of life, hope and dignity, and the simultaneous awakening of a sense of moral outrage previously suppressed by the horror of his daily existence."
The New York Times describes actor John Turturro's portrayal of Levi as "the performance of his career."
This and future film series showings are free and open to the public. "The Truce" is presented in Italian with English subtitles, and has a running time of 116 minutes.
