Two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage.

The Ryder Magazin and Film Series Logo

The Ryder Film Series has presented the best in international, independent, and classic American films in Bloomington for over forty years. If your taste runs toward personal movies that you won’t find at the multiplex, major festival winners, or activist documentaries, you’ve come to the right place.

The Ryder screens films at several locations, each with its own unique charms.

A monthly film program is published in The Ryder magazine, Bloomington’s free magazine of the arts and popular culture. The magazine is distributed in over 250 locations in and around Bloomington and the Indiana University campus.
