All films are contemporary, in both production and topic, and were made in the country of origin with local funding. They either enjoyed critical acclaim or were audience favorites.
“The films are shown in combination with my course GEOG 3050: Geography in Film,” Michael Peterson, a UNO geography professor, said in a university release. “We’re inviting people from the UNO community to view the films along with our class.”
Other films in the world cinema series come from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa and Syria.
The cinema series — which starts promptly at 6 p.m. — includes films that were banned for political reasons in the country of production.
