THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

This touring series of recent films from Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East offers a unique survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where economic realities make film storytelling—and the opportunity to reach international audiences—a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the films are deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live. Organized by the Global Film Initiative, “Global Lens” is one of the non-profit organization’s many granting, distribution, and education initiatives promoting cross-cultural understanding through cinema and the growth of global film communities.

Chilean documentarian Patricio Guzmán’s unique body of films has largely chronicled a single broad subject over four decades: the events that have shaped the modern history of his country. In 1973, Chilean President Salvador Allende’s government was brought down in a bloody coup that propelled General Augusto Pinochet to power. From his self-exile in Europe, Guzmán’s response was THE BATTLE OF CHILE, a passionate recounting of the last year in the life of the first democratically elected Socialist in Latin America. Since then, the repercussions of the coup—social, political, economic, and personal—have been the subject of a cinematic exploration that has telescoped into a universal inquiry into the nature of history and memory and the essence of cinema itself. Opening the series is Guzmán’s newest film NOSTALGIA FOR THE LIGHT, a hypnotically evocative cosmic mediation on how the past—all pasts—are ever-present. “The only eternal lesson to be had is to study the past, so that we won’t repeat it. ... Chile is a country that doesn’t take responsibility for what it has done. When it comes to the past, many people say, ‘It wasn’t me, I didn’t see it, I wasn’t there.’ It’s like no one was responsible for what occurred. There is no daily reminder.”—Patricio Guzmán.
