Writer/Director: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne - Drama released in 2014
Sandra has just returned to work after a period away. Upon returning she learns that not only will she be likely dismissed, but that the income from her position will be used to provide a bonus for her co-workers. Sandra races against time over the course of the weekend to convince each of her fellow employees, who will ultimately decide if she is to stay or go, to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses so she can keep her job. With each encounter, Sandra is brought into a different world with unexpected results in this powerful statement on community solidarity.
Guest speaker for this screening will be Austin Chronicle Film Reviewer Josh Kupecki.
