Chicago International Film Festival
October 2 @ 6:00 pm
Free screening of the Swedish film Strawberry Days (Jordgubbslandet) at the Chicago Cultural Center. As part of Chicago’s 55th International Film Festival, the Swedish American Museum and the Consulate of Sweden are sponsoring a showing of Strawberry Days. The film is about Polish teenager Wojtek who has joined his down-on-their-luck migrant worker parents to pick strawberries in Sweden for the summer. Smitten with the landowners’ daughter, he quickly wins Anneli over with his persistent charm. Just as love begins to blossom, the young couple are faced with not only their social and cultural differences but also each community’s own prejudices. The movie is in Swedish and Polish with English subtitles.
