MoMA and the Global Film Initiative (GFI) present Global Lens, an annual touring exhibition conceived by GFI to encourage filmmaking in countries with developing film communities.
The selection of 10 films (from Egypt, Brazil and more) includes projects developed with seed money from GFI, and represents a concise survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where local political restrictions and/or economic realities make such expensive and technology-driven endeavors a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, these films are all deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories.
MoMA celebrates the 10th anniversary of Global Lens.
