Family Rights-Themed Film Series Continues Sept. 16 with ‘The Other Son’

The Other Son looks at family dynamics and the relationships of ethnicity and religion.

Le Fils de Autre (The Other Son) looks at family dynamics and the relationships of ethnicity and religion.

The Institute for Human Rights & Humanitarian Studies film Festival, “Tuesdays in September,” continues its focus on the theme of family rights. The third film in the series, Le Fils de autre, screens Tuesday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. in the Winifred Moore Auditorium and is free and open to the public. 

Le Fils de autre (“The Other Son,” 2012, 105 minutes, Rapsodie Production) is a narrative film that tells the story of infants switched at birth—one Israeli and the other Palestinian. The young men find out their ethnicity and religious background and the film delves into how they deal with the fact that they have been raised across “enemy lines.”

This event is cross-posted at the University Events Calendar. Visit the calendar at events.webster.edu to share and see all upcoming events.
