Windows On The West Film Series 
6pm - 9pm
Location: Assembly room, Bechtel I-Center

This film series is designed to help first year foreign students understand us Americans. For many it is difficult, confusing & frustrating. Who are we?  How do we relate to other people? How do we convey respect or not?  We send mixed messages. You are traveling through a minefield.  So is everyone else in their first experience in America.  My hope is that through this film series, you can laugh at us & with us in our inconsistencies & poorly conveyed social signals. I want to be able to understand you as a person and as a people that you represent. I also chose these films because I find them enormously entertaining. This event is supported by the Bechtel International Center.
