International Summer Screenings Festival – Canada, “Clara”

June 26, 2019
Chicago Cultural Center
Chicago, IL 60602

With its long, languid days and sweltering, starry nights, summertime inspires a sense of freedom and adventure. From the blossom of young romance and swimsuit sunbathing to the promise of mermaids and the search for alien life, this collection of films represents these feelings that summer evokes. Cinema/Chicago, together with the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and our consular and cultural partners including the Consulate General of Canada in Chicago, presents SUMMER SCREENINGS, a free weekly film series that embraces the senses of summer and adventure from around the world. Canada’s film will be CLARA. An astronomer obsessed with the search for alien life is fired from the university when his emotional past begins to affect his judgement. Determined to discover life in the distant universe, he enlists the help of a down-on-her luck research assistant. As the pair looks toward the night sky, they begin to make contact with the things that make life worth living. The post-screening speaker will be Michelle Nichols, Senior Educator at the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum. Please arrive early. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to theater capacity. Film is unrated. Viewer discretion is advised.
