‘Arabian Nights’ opens Belmont World Film series Sunday

BELMONT, MASS. – On six Sundays from March 1 through April 5, Belmont World Film presents its eightth annual international film series at the Studio Cinema in Belmont (376 Trapelo Road). All screenings begin at 7:30 p.m. Entitled “Image + Identity,” the series explores what it means to be a nationality, a parent, or a survivor.

On Sunday, March 1, the New England premiere of “Arabian Nights” will be presented.

“Arabian Nights,” from director Paul Kieffer concerns a handsome train conductor who becomes obsessed with a young Algerian woman he meets during his daily route from Luxembourg City to Bettembourg. After she abruptly disappears, he sets out to Algeria to find her — or does he? The viewer is never quite sure, as the whole experience may just be a Western imagining of what the East is like. Film scholar David Kleiler will lead a post-film discussion.

Tickets for individual films are $8 and $7 for students and seniors. The Belmont World Film Passport, which can be shared with one other person, includes four admissions for $25. Tickets are available starting one-half hour prior to each event, subject to availability, or in advance at www.mktix.com or at the Studio Cinema (376 Trapelo Road, Belmont) during box office hours (weekday evenings and weekends from noon till closing).

Belmont World Film 2009 is generously supported by GateHouse Media, publishers of the Belmont Citizen Herald, and the Studio Cinema in Belmont.

Belmont World Film presents award-winning feature films, documentaries, animation, and shorts from around the world, paired with topical speakers. It aims to bring together people of all ages, foster appreciation of the world’s diversity and stimulate discussion through the powerful universal language of film. Belmont World Films is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.
