FILM SERIES: The Alan Lutkus International Film Series will present "Mondays in the Sun" at 7 p.m. in 204 Newton Hall. Starring the Academy Award nominated actor Javier Bardem, this film examines the larger issue of a globalize labor market by focusing on a small group of workers forced out of their jobs in a shipyard.  The director has a whimsical take on the issue, but he makes the point of showing how these potentially productive men have been cut off from their previously active lives. Spain's right-wing government is pointedly made the target of the blame and crestfallen Joe embodies all that is lost when a nation's workforce is sacrificed. The film is free and open to the public. Discussant: David Tamarin, Associate Professor of History.  (Spanish with English subtitles, 113 min.)
