For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo continues its “Global Lens” international film series this spring. The film series is intended to promote intercultural understanding through the medium of cinema and to expose audiences to new voices from relatively unfamiliar parts of the world. All films begin at 7 p.m. in the University Classroom Building (UCB) Room 127. There is no admission charge.

The first film, “Nothing More (Nada+),” is shown on Tuesday, January 28. The film is a debut feature that explores the political and social aspects of today's Cuba. It is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Algeria’s official submission to the 2009 Academy Awards, “Masquerades,” is shown on February 25. This heartfelt comedy is in Arabic with English subtitles.

“I Am From Titov Veles” from Macedonia is shown on March 18. This Academy Award nominee blends realism with performances to create a vivid landscape of life and longing in post-communist Macedonia.

The final film is “Belvedere” on April 15. Bosnia and Herzegovina’s official submission to the 2012 Academy Awards, “Belvedere” is a portrait of war’s troubled aftermath and paints an uncommon image of patience, faith, love, and forgiveness.

“Global Lens” is sponsored by the UH Hilo International Student Services and Intercultural Education Program. For more information, visit or call 932-7467.
