The Belmont World Film series, which brings acclaimed international films to the MetroBoston area, continues tonight at StudioCinema in Belmont.
Tonight’s feature is the drama Lamb, which played last year’s Cannes Film Festival and was also Ethiopia’s first ever Academy Award entry. The sometimes jarring, non-Westernized story has left some people reeling, but many critics have embraced the film for it’s bold storytelling and lush cinematography.
Tickets and information about this and the rest of the films in the series are available from the official website at http://belmontworldfilm.org, and may also be purchased at the StudioCinema boxoffice and website. The show begins at 7:30 PM.
Each spring, the Belmont World Film series brings a variety of films to the Metro area from all over the world. Some of the countries represented this year, in addition to France, are Romania, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, and China, plus many others. You can get a complete calendar of upcoming events at the official website above, and of course eCinemaBoston will keep you in the know when each screening is scheduled. Most showings are at StudioCinema, with selected screenings at the West Newton Cinema in West Newton.
