    The Chicago International Film Festival presents Summer Screenings, a free weekly film series that casts a spotlight on international cinema.

    Breathing new life into stories translated to the screen, the theme of this year’s selections is Adaptation. Since the invention of cinema, movies have drawn inspiration from art forms of all kinds. Whether faithful renderings of popular novels or radical re-imaginings of historical events, film can create vast, visual worlds while telling the stories that matter to us most. This year’s selections include adaptations of novels, children’s books, short stories, and real-life events.

    All film screenings are complimentary and open to the public, but as a Citi cardmember, you will have early access to register as well as reserved seating for each screening. These offers are extremely limited and available on a first come first served basis.

    Screening information will be updated on this page throughout the summer.

    • DATE: Wednesday, September 14
      TIME: 6:30PM CT
      LOCATION: Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington St., Chicago IL 60602)
      Writer-director Debbie Tucker Green daringly adapts her acclaimed stage work for the screen, a layered collection of scenes that give voice to the joys, struggles, triumphs, and defeats of the ongoing struggle for racial equality. Cinematic flourishes, from invigorating closeups and dynamic camera movement to riveting light design, give visual depth to the arresting dialogue. A blistering examination of racial injustice in the U.S. and U.K., ear for eye is a breathtaking work of anger, joy, and contemplation. Directed by Debbie Tucker Green.

      This event will include a post-screening discussion, presented by Citi, with Simi Lindgren, Founder & CEO of Yuty, and Ndubuisi Uchea, CEO of Word on the Curb, of London & Partner’s Race, Ethnicity And Cultural Heritage (REACH) Mission.

      The film is presented in English.

      Newly single, twenty-something aspiring journalist Hanna leaves Stockholm to move back in with her parents in her small hometown. Already feeling adrift, her world is turned upside-down when her father, a respected priest, informs his family that he wants to come out as Marianne. How can Hanna, who hardly believes in herself, accept her father for who she really is? Charming and heartbreaking, the film is inspired by award-winning writer Ester Roxberg’s 2014 autobiographical novel. Directed by Mårten Klingberg.

      The film is presented in Swedish with English subtitles.
