Join us in the John Deere Auditorium for the Film at the Figge Art Museum series. This fall four remarkable award-winning films that deal with death, loss, and grief in unexpected ways will be shown. The first film in the series is Departures (2008). Stick around for a glass of wine and casual discussion immediately following the film in the Mary Waterman Gildehaus Community Gallery outside of the John Deere Auditorium. 

About Departures (2008):
Daigo, a professional cellist is left jobless when his Tokyo orchestra disbands. Looking for work, he answers a classified ad with the headline "Departures" that he believes to be a position with a travel agency. The job will change the course of his life.
