Pre-registration is required, as “seating” is limited. Link to the screening will expire at 6pm on Wed., July 8.

Esmail is a darkly handsome Iranian immigrant to Denmark who is on the verge of being thrown out of the country unless he can find a Danish woman willing to marry him. Night after night he puts on the same suit and hits the Copenhagen bar scene hoping to turn the next woman he sees into his future spouse. But amidst a series of fleeting relationships and failed one-night stands, Esmail meets Sara, a beautiful Danish-Iranian woman who makes him question everything about himself and what he is doing. As time is running out, the charmer finds himself caught between self-interest and self-respect.

Accompanying the film screening will be a transcript of Dr. John Pfeifer’s corresponding lecture, which can be viewed prior to or following the screening.
