The 52nd annual International Film Festival will continue with “The End of August at the Hotel Ozone” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, in Cornell Auditorium.
Directed by Jan Schmidt, the 1967 Czechoslovakian film follows a group of women who revert to primitive barbarity in order to survive after a nuclear war. Newsday called the film “a gripping, frightening horror story of the ultimate brutalization of humanity after most of the world has blown itself up.”
Presented by the Missouri Southern Film Society and the Institute of International Studies, admission is free and open to the public.
The series will continue on April 8 with the 1956 Polish film “Shadow.”
