The Bill Cosford Cinema screens “May in the Summer.” The film, directed by Cherien Dabis, follows May Brennan, who to all appearances has it all – intelligent, gorgeous, the recipient of raves for her recently published book and set to marry her loving fiancé Ziad, a distinguished New York scholar. But immediately upon returning to her familial hometown of Amman, Jordan, for the wedding, the cracks in her seemingly perfect life begin to show. May’s headstrong, born-again Christian mother Nadine disapproves of Ziad’s Muslim faith and is firm in her decision to not attend the ceremony. Confronted with the wounds of her parent’s long-broken relationship, coupled with the unavoidable clash of old-world and modern values, May is led to question the direction her life is taking. 6:30 p.m. Aug. 29. Additional screenings through Sept. 4. Cosford Cinema at UM, Memorial building 227, 5030 Brunson Dr., Coral Gables. Free for UM students. $7 seniors, UM alumni, faculty, students and staff. $9 others. Details: (305) 284-4861 or www.cosfordcinema.com.
