    March 10 - May 5, 2014


    Belmont World Film's 13th Annual International Film Series

    The line-up includes:

    Monday, April 21: WAJMA: AN AFGHAN LOVE STORY directed by Barmak Akram (Afghanistan/France; in Persian)

    Monday, April 28: ROCK THE CASBAH directed by Laïla Marrakchi (France/Morocco; in French, Arabic & English) New England Premiere

    Monday, May 5: THE GILDED CAGE directed by Ruben Alves (France; in French, Portuguese & English) New England Premiere

    Belmont World Film's 13th annual international film series entitled Home Is Where…, features eight internationally acclaimed films—including many New England premieres, as well as several countries’ submissions for best foreign film at this year’s Oscars—that have been culled from the world’s top film festivals. Films are from countries not known for filmmaking, such as Singapore, Chad, and Afghanistan, as well from more familiar countries, such as Brazil, France, Morocco, and Portugal. All events feature either post-film discussions by notable experts or culturally-related performances; several screenings feature pre-film dinners and receptions. The festival is part of the Consulate General of France in Boston’s Francophonie Celebration of New England.

    “Each film in this year’s series is concerned with the home, whether it’s returning home, finding a new home, being imprisoned at home, or finding home through personal pursuits,” says Belmont World Film Executive Director Ellen Gitelman. “Although home is a common human need, these films demonstrate how it means something different in every culture. It is Belmont World Film’s aim to engage with other cultures through film in order to promote understanding.”
