Free Foreign Film Series at USI Starts with an Exploration of Ocean Life

Article excerpt

The best and most interesting movie bargain in town picks up again this week with the University of Southern Indiana's fall Friday in the Forum series.

"Henry of Navarre," a 2010 German film exploring the remarkable career arc of France's King Henry IV, will screen Nov. 9.

"Vincent Wants to Sea," a German 2010 road movie following a man with Tourette's syndrome as he and two others escape an institution, will run Nov. 30.
