Global Lens 2011

January 13–28, 2011 The Museum of Modern Art

The films presented in this annual collaboration between MoMA and the Global Film Initiative (GFI) are part of
the touring film exhibition Global Lens, a project conceived to encourage filmmaking in countries with emerging film communities. The selection of nine programs, which include films developed with seed money from GFI, represents a concise survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where local economic realities make such expensive and technology-driven endeavors a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the films are also deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories.

Organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Global Film Initiative and the Department of Film.
