Weicholz Global Film Series: Becoming Astrid
July 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
Becoming Astrid is a 2018 biographical drama film about the early years of Swedish author Astrid Lindgren, the world’s third most-translated children’s writer, credited for more than 100 books including Pippi Longstocking. Eager to break free from her conservative upbringing, teenaged Astrid trades her carefree life working on her family’s farm for an internship at a local newspaper. At first, it seems like an ideal outlet, not only for her talents, but also for her desire to become a free-thinking, modern adult woman of the 1920s.
