  1. Hi Kimberly, I was trying to remember this Danish film yesterday. You can stream it from Netflix.
    After the Wedding (Efter Brylluppet) by Director Susanne Bier. So nice to have met you.
    To save the failing orphanage he runs in India, Danish transplant Jacob Petersen (Mads Mikkelsen) returns to his homeland to meet a self-indulgent businessman named Jørgen who’s offered a generous donation — and represents everything the noble-minded Jacob abhors. Complicating matters further are the unusual strings Jørgen has attached to his so-called gift. Rolf Lassgård co-stars in this Oscar-nominated emotional powerhouse of a drama.

  3. Hello,

    My name is Domenico Barbieri and I am looking for a lecturer to come and speak at my organization, regarding feminism. I was wondering if you had any suggestions! I am part of an all male organization, and while I was raised, by my mother and grandmother, I feel that a lot of individuals still grow up with a type of misogynistic mindset.

    Thank you,

    Domenico Barbieri
