Movie Discussion with Paul Doherty on Zoom

Friday, May 28

10:00 am - 11:00 am


Friday, May 28th at 10:00 am. Watch Babel (2006) anytime before May 28th at 10am on our free Hoopla streaming service or place a hold on a DVD. A wealthy American is touring Morocco with his wife. The two become the focus of an international incident also involving a poor Moroccan farmer who is struggling to keep his two young sons in line and his family together. A San Diego nanny, with her employers absent, makes the disastrous decision to take her charges with her to a wedding in Mexico. A deaf-mute Japanese teen tries to deal with a relationship with her father and the world in general that has been upended by the death of her mother. It’s about a gun. It’s about communication – or the lack of it – both intercultural and intracultural. Raises issues like terrorism and immigration, and is as basic as husbands talking to their wives and parents understanding their children.
