The International Film Series hosts its second screening of the spring season with the showing of Finnish comedy “Force Majeure.” Directed by Ruben Ostlund, “Force Majeure” follows a family vacationing in the French Alps who witnesses an avalanche, which forces them to question their family relationships.

 “We are excited to partner with Alamo Drafthouse on this screening,” said Robert Peaslee, International Film Series coordinator. “Alamo's Tim League felt strongly enough about this film to make it a free screening for all students and educators, and we're happy to include it in our schedule.”

Reserved seats are available through Alamo Drafthouse for $5 and can be exchanged for $5 worth of food/beverage vouchers for use inside the theatre.
