Global Lens 2006 film series

GLOBAL LENS 2006, May 5-12, 2006
Global Lens 2006 film series provides an opportunity to share innovative works that have greatly impacted the international film community that would not otherwise be seen in the United States.
Continuing its mission of promoting cultural diversity through the universal language of cinema, Cinema/Chicago, the presenting organization of the Chicago International Film Festival, is proud to present the Global Lens 2006, a film series showcasing award-wining works from countries with emergent film cultures such as Iran, South Africa, Palestine, Brazil, Burkina Faso, China and Lebanon.

Working in collaboration with The Global Film Initiative, a New York-based organization dedicated to supporting and promoting films from developing countries, Global Lens 2006 will be shown at Landmark’s Century Centre Cinemas, from May 5-12, 2006. This exciting film series features eight narrative films and a program of five short films, showing stories of perseverance and strength, through love and conflict, from every corner of the world.

“This event is an opportunity to share innovative works that would not otherwise be seen in the United States”, states Helen Gramates, Director of Programming for Cinema/Chicago. “The films in Global Lens are reflective of the films we present in our annual October Festival. We’re excited that Chicago audiences can continue exploring the broad scope of the human experience with this program.”

“The intrinsic beauty of each of these stories, enhanced by their colors, shapes and cultural textures, creates a rich mosaic that offers American audiences a variety of enlightening perspectives”, adds Susan Weeks Coulter, Chairperson for The Global Film Initiative.
