Pelle the Conqueror

April 28-30, 7:30 p.m.

Packing up your life and moving to a strange new country is never easy, and it only gets harder when your new neighbors shun and scorn you. Pelle and his father Lasse leave Sweden for Denmark after the death of Lasse's wife, but have a hard time finding work. Pelle is too young and Lasse is too old for most jobs. They end up as laborers on a large farm, which is dominated by the foreman, Kongstrup. While Pelle tries to assimilate and learn the language, his father ends up in a dangerous relationship with a woman whose husband may or may not ever be coming back. All the while Pelle dreams of heading out into the wider world to see America and parts beyond. Billie August's film adaption of Martin Andersen Nexø's novel Pelle the Conqueror won an Academy Award for Best Foreign film and stars Max von Sydow in one of his greatest performances. The film screens at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (April 28 to 30) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; as part of the Webster Film Series. Tickets are $5 to $7. $5-$7
