Norway/Canada/Germany (2016) Dir: Rob Tregenza
A German businessman travels to Norway to finish the impossible translation of Norwegian poet Tarjei Vesaas’s poems into Chinese, a project of his late wife. The title is borrowed from philosopher W.V.O. Quine and refers to the attempt to make sense of a word in a foreign language. Gavagai is a drama of two stories of shared purpose and forged intimacy—and of love and loss. English. 90 min. Presented in collaboration with FLiCX and the office of Dean of Students.
