The Museum of Modern Art will present Global Lens 2006, its third annual exhibition of world cinema in collaboration with the Global Film Initiative, a New York-based organization established to promote cross-cultural understanding through the medium of cinema. As the New York venue for the nationally touring film exhibition, which will be presented February 3-20 in The Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters, the museum will present eight fiction features and five short fiction films from countries with developing and emergent film cultures. Among the features are “La Nuit de la verite” (The Night of Truth, 2004), a contemporary film from Burkina Faso that explores tribal hatred and bitterness in an unnamed African country, and “Cinema, aspirinas e urubus” (Cinema, Aspirins and Vultures, 2004), a quixotic road trip set in 1942 Brazil. For more information and a full list of films, visit MoMA’s website. [Brian Brooks]
