International Film Series at Pitt - Oct 20-21


The University Center for International Studies at Pitt is presenting a series of films on the theme about displaced persons at the Frick Fine Arts auditorium. Click here for a schedule and trailers.

One of the films portrays the King of the Belgians on a state visit in Istanbul when his country falls apart. He must return home at once to save his kingdom. But a solar storm causes airspace and communications to shut down. No planes. No phones. With the help of a British filmmaker and a troupe of Bulgarian folk singers, the King and his entourage manage to escape over the border. Incognito. Thus begins an odyssey across the Balkans during which the King discovers the real world - and his true self.
