Belmont World Film series gets underway with “Chinese Takeaway”

diyf_belmontworldfilm2013_headerBelmont World Film‘s 12th annual international film series gets underway tonight at Belmont’s StudioCinema theater with the New England Premiere of the critically-acclaimed Argentinian film Chinese Take-Away.

Ricardo Darin (the Oscar winning The Secret of Their Eyes) stars as a bitter loner who collects news stories about rare freakish events. When he begrudgingly takes in a young Chinese immigrant in search of his long lost family, it sets off a series of events that has him stepping out of his tightly wound world.

The film’s premiere will be preceded by an optional Chinese dinner at 6:00 PM at the theater ($25 separate admission). Tickets can be purchased at StudioCinema or in advance through Belmont World Film’s Festival Genius site at

The 12th annual international film series runs on alternate Monday evenings at 7:30 PM.

Belmont World Film is sponsored year-round in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and with help from Cambridge Reprographics and Rule Boston.
