|Global Visions film series presents "Games of Love and Chance"|
The Department of Anthropology’s Global Visions film series continues Tuesday, Jan. 30, at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl with the French film, "Games of Love and Chance." All films are free and open to the public.
The Global Visions film series presents two films per month, and is funded in part by the Multicultural Awareness Committee. It is currently the only venue in Grand Forks to show independent films from a wide variety of contemporary filmmakers from around the world.
The series kicks off with the powerful cinematic creation, "Games of Love and Chance" by Abdellatif Kechiche. This film is about a young North African immigrant’s adventures in Paris. The film is the winner of several César awards, and offers a graceful and sympathetic look at how the lives of teenagers intersect as it choreographs a dizzying series of collisions between the hip-hop influenced, Arabic-inflected staccato of working-class youth slang.
Other films are:
* "Junebug" (U.S.), Feb. 13.
* "Woman is the Future of Man" (Korea), Feb. 27.
* "The Forsaken Land" (Sri-Lanka), March 6.
* "The Cuckoo" (Russia), March 20.
* "Take My Eyes" (Spain), April 3.
* "Broken Wings" (Jewish), April 17.
* "Me, You, Them" (Brazil), May 1.
Filmgoers are encouraged to come early to ensure a seat. -- Marcia Mikulak, assistant professor of anthropology, 777-4718.
