OCU Film Series - 'The Kid With a Bike'

February 24th 2013 - 2:00pm

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival, this deeply moving French-language film by a pair of brother directors delves into the emotional life of troubled 11-year-old Cyril, showing once again their ability to chart the wilds of childhood. The New Yorker stated, “The real reason to see ‘The Kid with a Bike’ is that it offers something changelessly rare and difficult: a credible portrait of goodness.” The Dardennes have won two Golden Palms at previous Cannes festivals as well as Grand Jury Prizes. This film’s screening is timed to connect with the speech of Children’s Defense Fund leader Marian Wright Edelman, who will talk on campus in the OCU Distinguished Speaker Series event on March 4.

The theme of this year’s film series is “Escape From Freedom,” borrowed from the title of a book by social theorist Erich Fromm. The book describes Fromm’s theories of humanity’s views on freedom and what the world is like without it. The book will be available for purchase at all film screenings in the series
