Frostburg State University will continue its screenings of international films from India, Iraq, Mexico and Poland each Tuesday in conjunction with World Artists Experience and the International Division of Maryland’s Office of Secretary of State. The Bridges to the World International Film Series is a statewide, month-long initiative in recognition of the state’s global reach and a reflection of those connections here in Maryland.
“Nora’s Will” will be presented on Feb. 22, “How Much Does the Trojan Horse Weigh” will be presented March 1, “Hometown-Baghdad” will be presented March 8 and “Om Shanti Om” will be presented March 15. Each film will be introduced, screened and participants will be offered food from that country. All films will be shown with English subtitles. All screenings will begin at 7 p.m. in room 111 of the Lane University Center.
“Nora’s Will,” a feature from Mexico, chronicles a man’s stubborn fight against his ex-wife’s final wishes. And in the process he learns more than he anticipated about his family and himself. Under its original title, “Cinco Dias Sin Nora,” this film earned seven Mexican Oscars.
“How Much Does the Trojan Horse Weigh” is the feature from Poland originally titled “lle Wazy Kon Trojanski.” The fantasy, age-leaping movie transports 40-year-old Zosia back in time to 1987 after she wishes she could change things from her youth.
“Hometown Baghdad,” a documentary feature of Iraq, follows the lives of ordinary Iraqis just trying to survive in a warzone.
“Om Shanti Om,” produced in India, tells the story of Om, an aspiring actor living in the 1970s who was murdered and reincarnated into the present day.
