War is a Bore, and Then It is Not

Friday, Nov. 3

One of the reasons to be cheerful you live in the Boston environs (if you care about art, and why would you be reading this if you didn’t?) is Harvard Film Archive, which offers a series of movies you just would not find anywhere else. Call ’em highbrow, call ’em foreign, call em international. On Friday Nov. 3 at 8 p.m. the HFA presents Croatian director Rajko Grlic, who will be discussing a screening of his film "Border Post." It’s said to capture a moment of innocence in the final days of the Yugoslavian republic and recalls Robert Altmans M*A*S*H, That is, the soliders at the border kill time, make jokes, and cope with the boredom of war … until war is not boring. Tickets: $8.
