Westminster Features Italian Film about Friendship

The Jake Erhardt International Film Series continues with Cinema Paridiso Tuesday, April 4, at 7 p.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater
located in the McKelvey Campus Center.

 "This 1989 film, set in post World War II Italy, is one of my personal favorites," said Dr. Deborah Mitchell, associate professor of English and public relations and series coordinator.  "The story explores the friendship between a young boy who loves movies and the cranky old projectionist who works in the town theater.  This film has absolutely wonderful performances and screenplay.  It won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film."

The International Film Series is named in honor of its founder, Dr. Jacob Erhardt, professor emeritus of German at Westminster College.  Erhardt, who taught at Westminster from 1968 until his retirement in 2004, served as chair of his department from 1970-1986, was named the Language Educator of the Year by the Pennsylvania State Modern Languages Association, translated into English Robert Reitzel's Adventures of a Greenhorn, and was recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities as an outstanding member.

The event, which is part of a ten-film series, is free and open to the public
