Bridgewater College will present an interfaith film festival Feb. 15 and 16. Both films will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Boitnott Room on campus.

American East will be screened on Wednesday, Feb. 15. A 2008 film, American East is a drama about Arab-Americans living in post-9/11 Los Angeles. The story highlights the pressures under which many Arab-Americans live by focusing on the points-of-view of three main characters.

Black Robe will be shown on Thursday, Feb. 16. Set in 1634, this film follows the travels of Father LaForgue, a Jesuit priest called upon to search for a remote Canadian mission surrounded by Huron settlements. Characters attempt to understand each other across significant cultural differences, making the hope of mutual understanding and life together hard to imagine.

Both films are open to the public at no charge.
