This screening is director Kogonada's 'Columbus'.

In this charming debut a young librarian and an out-of-town visitor bond in Columbus, Indiana, via conversations about life, relationships and the city’s exceptional modern architecture.

"​Kogonada includes all the troubles Indianans face – meth problems, having to work two manual-labor jobs to pay rent, racial tension – but he smartly builds it into the characters’ motivations and backstory. Elisha Christian’s cinematography and Kogonada’s story reveal the deep relationship between architecture and people that many might miss.” ​— Rich Smith, "The Stranger"

A USA production,​ 2017, 104 minutes, HD, M (offensive language & drug references).
