The National Museum of Women in the Arts’ film series, “The Female Gaze: Bridging Cultures in Celebration of Women” continues with Betrayal, Vibeke Lakkeberg’s portrait of the WWII’s aftermath seen through the eyes of two children in 1948 Bergen, Norway. Middle-class Kamilla and working-class Svein are two 7-year-olds grappling with family upheaval and abuse in an environment still jolted by the devastation of the war. Kamilla’s factory-owner father has gone bankrupt and now makes shoes, while dreaming of the riches that await him in North America; Svein’s downtrodden parents cherish no such impossible dreams. At 6:30 p.m. at the National Museum of Women in the Arts Auditorium, 1250 New York Ave. NW. $6. (202) 783-7370. (Arion Berger)
