From today until 3/3/2018 students and staff can access a trial of a new collection of 376 films, Independent World Cinema.
The collection includes some of the most important films produced from the early 20th century to today. It turns the spotlight on three preeminent independent distributors—Milestone Films, Zeitgeist Films, and Oscilloscope. More than just a cinema studies collection, these films support subjects such as cultural history, psychology, gender studies, anthropology, theatre, African American studies, and more.
Some collection highlights:
La Yuma (2009) is the story of a girl from Managua, Nicaragua who dreams of becoming a boxer.
MURDER and murderer (1996) tells the story of two middle-aged women who become lovers and set up home together.
People Of The Wind (1976) is a documentary about the Babadi people of Southern Iran during their remarkable semi-annual migration across raging rivers and the Zagros Mountains.
Please give us your feedback on the collection, either via the comments below or through your Academic Liaison Librarian.
