NEWS: BELVEDERE and A USEFUL LIFE Now Available Exclusively on Fandor!

We recently announced that Global Lens films are now streaming on Hulu, and we here at the Global Film Initiative are quite excited about it. But what has us equally aflutter at the moment is that two of our most popular films – Ahmed Imamovic’s BELVEDERE and Federico Veiroj’s A USEFUL LIFE – are now streaming exclusively on Fandor!

A scene from BELVEDERE

Bosnia & Herzegovina’s official submission to the Foreign Language category of the 2011 Academy Awards, BELVEDERE delves into the struggle of a determined widow who, fifteen years after the ethnic cleansing of Bosnian Muslims during the Balkan conflict, searches for the remains of her husband and son while quietly trying to rebuild her life. A USEFUL LIFE, Uruguay’s Academy Award submission in the same year, tells the charming tale of a devoted art-house cinema employee who must learn to adjust to life outside the theater when financial troubles force the cinematheque to shut its doors once and for all.

Neither film has been released on DVD, and so if you want to see them – and believe me, you do – the only place to do so is with our friends at Fandor. So head on over there and check them out, along with plenty of other great Global Lens films!
