Gavagai

Wednesday, April 18, 2018,

  • Location: Sarratt Cinema

Presented by Scott Juengel, Senior Lecturer/Assistant
Director of Graduate Studies in English

Norway/Canada/Germany (2016) Dir: Rob
 Tregenza

A German businessman travels to
 Norway to finish the impossible translation of
 Norwegian poet Tarjei Vesaas’s poems into
 Chinese, a project of his late wife. The title is 
borrowed from philosopher W.V.O. Quine and 
refers to the attempt to make sense of a word in a foreign language. Gavagai is a drama of two stories of shared purpose and forged intimacy—and of love and loss. English. 90 min. Presented in collaboration with FLiCX and the office of Dean of Students
