The University of North Dakota Global Visions Film Series continues Tuesday, April 15, with Terraferma (English: Dry Land), an Academy Award-nominated 88 minute Italian film from 2011. The movie starts at 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl.

The Global Visions Film Series this spring explores a variety of themes that include the richness of human connection and relationships, the wonder and inspiration to be found in the natural world, the compassion and complexity of emotions experienced by people making choices to improve the lives of others, and the comedic relief that can be found despite the stresses of everyday life.

The Series promotes diversity in North Dakota by screening award-winning national and international films. The Series is sponsored by the Black Student Association, The Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Center, and the Anthropology Department at UND.

The series is partially funded by the Student Organization Funding Association, good will donations, and financial assistance from the sponsoring departments at UND.

The goal of the film series is to provide the University and the Grand Forks communities with the opportunity to experience films of exceptional quality from around the world, providing a broader understanding of, and appreciation for, the breadth, variety, and commonality of the human family.

Many university faculty across disciplines assign these films as extra credit assignments for students. Each film screed this season is a winner of multiple awards at both international and national film festivals.

Both street parking and pay parking are available.

All films begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays between February and May, 2014.

All films are free and open to the public, students, faculty, and staff. A $1 good will donation is requested but not mandatory.
