"Global Lens 2009" Film Program

The Museum of Modern Art

This event has ended.

The films presented in this annual collaboration between MoMA and the Global Film Initiative (GFI) are part of the touring film exhibition Global Lens, a project conceived to encourage filmmaking in countries with developing film communities. The selection of ten programs, which include films developed with seed money from GFI, represents a concise survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where local economic realities make such expensive and technology-driven endeavors a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the films are also deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories. Several of the films will also be screened for participating educational institutions and schools in the New York area as part of an educational project between GFI and MoMA's Department of Education.
