Frostburg State University's 2001-2002 International Film Series resumes with "Himalaya" on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. in the Lane University Center's Atkinson Room on the second floor. The series is sponsored by Center Stage and the Department of Student & Community Involvement.
"Himalaya" presents a colorful picture of the traditional life of Tibetan herdsmen, set in the bleak but majestic scenery of the Himalayas of Nepal. Centered around a caravan journey through the mountains, this story of the youth of a future village chief is an epic of pride and endurance. Film critic Robert Ebert describes the movie as "a film of unusual visual beauty and enormous intrinsic interest."
"Himalaya" is presented in German and Tibetan with English subtitles, and has a running time of one hour and 44 minutes.
The remaining films of this year's series include the following titles:
- "Those Who Love Me Can Take the Train" - March 5
- "Rodrigo D: No Future" - April 2
- "The Legend of Rita" - May 7
