EAU CLAIRE — "Three Seasons" — a film that won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival — will screen Oct. 7-10 at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
The International Film Society will present Tony Bui's drama at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Thursday through Sunday in Davies Theatre.
"A narrative pastiche weaving four separate stories in present-day Vietnam, 'Three Seasons' is an eloquent depiction of life in that tumultuous country," wrote The Hollywood Reporter. "Reminiscent of Italian neo-realism, Bui focuses on those who are barely scraping by, including a cyclo driver, a prostitute, a young man who hustles trinkets on the streets and a girl who has been hired to be a personal assistant to a reclusive spiritual master."
Also a Sundance winner for its cinematography, the 114-minute color film (screening in 16mm format) is rated PG-13. The film is in English and Vietnamese, subtitled in English.
Tickets, available at the University Service Center, (715) 836-3727, are $2 for International Film Society members and UW-Eau Claire faculty/staff or $1 for UW-Eau Claire students.
