Doing its part to improve awareness and appreciation of contemporary international film in Cincinnati, the University of Cincinnati’s Center for Film and Media Studies is kicking off a three-film series of European movies next Wednesday with a great title — Finnish director Aki Kaurismäki’s droll, deadpan road picture about a Russian Rock band, 1989’s Leningrad Cowboys Go America. UC professor Todd Herzog will lead a post-film discussion. Future films are the French Little Jerusalem on Nov. 4 and the Bosnian/German Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams on Nov. 11. Advance tickets are available at the “events” page at esquiretheatre.com.


7:30 p.m. Wednesday. $9.75. Esquire Theatre, 320 Ludlow Ave., Clifton, esquiretheatre.com.
