For Immediate Release

The final film in the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Global Lens international film series is “The Kite.” The film will be shown on Tuesday, April 16 at 7 pm in University Classroom Building (UCB) 127. There is no admission charge.

Set in Lebanon, this award-winning film tells the story of a teenage girl who must cross a border checkpoint between Lebanon and Israel to marry a man she has never met. Neither she nor her betrothed are eager to consummate a marriage to a stranger--a matter further complicated by the girl's surprising admission that she is in love with the Israeli soldier guarding the border.

The film is in Arabic with English subtitles.

Global Lens is sponsored by the UH Hilo International Student Services and Intercultural Education Program and the International Student Association.
