BOSTON SPRINGS A FETHIVAL 2017: More of Belmont World Film series tonight at StudioCinema

Belmont World Film continues their spring series of films tonight at the StudioCinema in Belmont. The BWF series, which started in 2002, promotes cross-cultural understanding through film screenings accompanied by discussions led by expert speakers, cultural performances, and ethnic cuisine, and is known for showcaseing a variety of film styles and genres during their annual series, and this year is no exception.

Tonight, the series will screen Goldstone  from director Ivan Sen, another New England premiere – here’s the info from the BWF Website:

In this western noir, wrapped inside a story about protecting the sacred ground of Australia’s native people, director, cinematographer, writer and composer Ivan Sen follows up Mystery Road with a standalone story about aboriginal Detective Jay Swan. When Swan arrives in a frontier mining town on a missing person’s inquiry, a simple light duty investigation opens a web of crime and corruption implicating the mining boss, the mayor, and the Aboriginal Land Council. The film features David Wenham, who played John Brierley in the Oscar-nominated Lion and aboriginal actor David Gulpilil, who began his career in film in Walkabout and who wrote and starred in the multi-award winning Charlie’s Country.

The film is in both English and Mandarin with English subtitles and will screen at 7:30 PM; you can purchase tickets here. 

The speaker at this week’s screening will be the film’s director, Ivan Sen, who will appear via Skype.

In addition to tonight’s show, BWF will host additional screenings this year on  5/1, 5/8, and 5/16, all at Belmont’s StudioCinema at 376 Trapelo Road.
