Screening: "Love Affair, or the Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator"

Perry-Castañeda Library (PCL)
Learning Lab 1
Join us for a screening and discussion of the Yugoslav film Love Affair, or the Case of the Missing Switchboard Operator, presented by the University of Texas Libraries Global Studies Ciné-Lit series.
Love Affair tells the story of the relationship between Isabela, a young switchboard operator in Belgrade, and Ahmed, a shy exterminator, from its harmonious beginnings to its tragic end. Intermingled with their narrative are vignettes from everyday life, newsreel footage, and bits of lectures delivered directly to the camera, all anarchically edited together with humor and warmth.
The Ciné-Lit series creates opportunities for cross-discipline conversation through exposure to films, literature and other resources from various regions of the world by highlighting materials that are encompassed within the collections of the University of Texas Libraries.
The event is free and open to the public.
