Vanderbilt’s International Lens spring films unveiled

International Lens, Vanderbilt University’s award-winning film series, has resumed for the spring semester through mid-April.


“One of the goals of International Lens is to offer thought-provoking films with a global perspective,” said Marci Angevine, International Lens co-chair. “This semester there will be 20 films from 20 nations, all free and open to the public.” She noted that every film screening includes an introduction and post-screening discussion facilitated by a Vanderbilt faculty member or program director. Most films will be shown in 35 mm prints.

This spring’s offerings include: The Clay Bird, La Vie En Rose, La Camioneta: The Journey of One American School Bus, Pop Goes the Easel, The Unknown Woman, The Magic Life, Amreeka, Maestra, Last Train Home, The Chorus, The Red Violin, Meet the Fokkens, Long Night’s Journey into Day, “An Evening with filmmaker Robert Beavers,” Distant, Departures, 678, Return to Paradise, and Tuesday, After Christmas.

Visit International Lens for a detailed listing on each screening. All films, except where noted, take place in the Sarratt Cinema at 7:30 p.m.

Parking for International Lens screenings is available at no charge in Zone 2 Lot 2 on West End Avenue. For more information, call 615-322-6400.

The series is made possible through the sponsorship of the Office of the Dean of Students, the Vanderbilt departments and programs represented, and through the generous support of Nashville cinephiles Mimi and Scott Manzler.
