Global Lens Film Festival 

What do a sensitive, rural-Brazilian farm boy, a spirited Indonesian prostitute named Sita and three sisters looking to escape their lives in post--communist Macedonia all have in common? These varied characters are central figures in the films Mutum, The Photograph and I Am From Titov Veles (respectively), all of which are making their Boise debut on Saturday, Jan. 16, at the Egyptian Theatre. The Global Lens film series--which is also currently screening at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Palm Springs International Film Festival--brings award-winning international movies to more than 35 locations across the United States and Canada.

From Friday, Jan. 15, through Sunday, Jan. 17, Boise's subtitle-loving masses can catch films from far-off locales like Kazakhstan and Mozambique. On Friday at 6:30 p.m., check out the Chinese comedy Getting Home, and at 8:30 p.m., catch the more somber Sleepwalking Land. On Saturday, I Am From Titov Veles plays at 2 p.m., Mutum shows at 4 p.m., The Photograph plays at 6:30 p.m. and Possible Lives shows at 8:30 p.m. On Sunday, the festival wraps up with My Time Will Come at 2 p.m., Those Three at 4 p.m., Song from the Southern Seas at 6:30 p.m. and What a Wonderful World at 8:30 p.m. Tickets to each screening are $6 and may be purchased at the Egyptian box office.
