Days of Heaven

April 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

This screening is free for everyone!

In the Fireside Lounge! Union, Campus level

In 1910, a Chicago steelworker accidentally kills his supervisor, forcing him, his girlfriend, and his little sister flee to the Texas panhandle, where they find work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer. A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire are all captured with dreamlike authenticity, creating a timeless American idyll that is also a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor.

(Terrence Malick, USA, English, 94min, 1978, Digital)
