The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo continues its Global Lens international film series this spring. The Global Lens film series is a critically acclaimed showcase of award-winning, independent narrative features from around the world, intended to promote intercultural understanding through the medium of cinema and to expose audiences to new voices from relatively unfamiliar parts of the world.
All films begin at 7 p.m. in the University Classroom Building (UCB) Room 127. There is no admission charge.
