Frostburg State University’s International Film Series and Center Stage will show “Dirty Pretty Things” on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center room 201.
This film dives into the extremes that illegal immigrants will go to in order to create a better life for themselves. The two main characters, Okwe and Senay, work for less than minimum wage in a hotel in London. Everyday they are in jeopardy of being deported by immigrant officials and they are often the targets of exploitation due to their status in London. When they realize that there is an illegal organ transplant operation occurring in the hotel that they work for they become entangled in the conspiracy. Ultimately, if they want to raise the money to travel to America to live, one of them must be willing to offer one of their organs.
