How We’ve Missed You: Global Lens Returns to MFA Boston!

Ahhhh, there’s nothing quite like the month of May in Boston. It’s finally warmed up from the snowy winter, and that summer humidity hasn’t yet set in. And this year, May also marks the long-awaited return of Global Lens at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston!

Long-awaited because this is the first time since 2006 that Global Lens has been shown at the MFA! But now thanks to Carter Long, the Museum’s film curator extraordinaire, MFA Boston will showcase Global Lens 2011 with 18 screenings from May 18th to the 29th, beginning today with DOOMAN RIVER and THE INVISIBLE EYE.

Earlier in the year, Carter brought critical and audience favorite THE WHITE MEADOWS to the MFA, along with MY TEHRAN FOR SALE (from the 2010 series), for their popular Boston Festival of Films from Iran. Listen to a great interview with Carter and MY TEHRAN director, Granaz Moussavi, here!

And now is your chance to see Global Lens 2011 in its entirety, so if you happen to be in Boston and you’re looking to plan the perfect date night, I would suggest:

1. Grab a cocktail at the Top of the Hub because THIS will be your view,
2. Have a lovely dinner at the Elephant Walk,
3. Take the Heath Street (E) Green Line and head over to the gorgeous MFA Boston to catch some of the best in world cinema,
4. Finish the night with some ice cream from J.P. Licks (check out this month’s featured flavors).

The Global Lens film series was launched in 2003 to support the distribution of unique and critically acclaimed cinematic works from around the world. Since its founding, the series has provided a platform for exceptional storytelling and opened a window into the diverse world in which we live. Now in its eighth year, Global Lens continues to attract dynamic new audiences and discover extraordinary new films, building upon the unique perspectives that have come to define the Global Film Initiative’s library of films.
