Belmont World Film's 17th Annual International Film Series: Bound by Beliefs

Nine films from the world’s top international film festivals will premiere at Belmont World Film’s 17th Annual International Film Series, which runs March 19-May 14 at the Studio Cinema in Belmont (376 Trapelo Road). Screenings take place mostly on Mondays at 7:30 PM with the exception or opening night on Sunday, March 18. All films are followed by thought-provoking discussions led by expert speakers and occasionally cultural performances. The opening and closing night films are preceded by dinner receptions featuring culturally-relevant cuisine at the theater.This year’s series, “Bound by Beliefs,” features films that show how difficult it is to implement change in the face of long-held societal or community beliefs. All but one film is either a North American, East Coast or New England premiere and several are also their countries’ submissions to the Academy Awards’ Best Foreign Language Film category. As in the last several years, a full third of the films are directed by women. The festival also includes the most recent work by several well-known directors, including French director Laurent Cantet (Foxfire, The Class), Laurence Ferrerira Barbosa (Normal People Are Nothing Exceptional), and Tony Gatlif (Latcho Drom, Gadjo Dilo). Opening night on Sunday, March 18, at 7:30 PM features the New England premiere of THE WORKSHOP, a thriller by French director Laurent Cantet that premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. In the once bustling port town of La Ciotat on the Mediterranean a group of young writers with multiple backgrounds are trying to reflect the town’s current rundown state in their group written thriller. The hostility and disturbing vision of one particular workshop participant soon alarms his peers and the instructor, a famous Parisian mystery writer. The screening is preceded by an optional opening night dinner reception at the theatre at 6PM featuring Provencal cuisine catered by La Voile. The screening is part of the Month of Francophonie sponsored by the French Consulate in Boston.The rest of the line-up includes:Monday, March 26: THE WOUND directed by John Trengrove (South Africa) New England premiereMonday, April 2: ALL THE DREAMS IN THE WORLD directed by Laurence Ferreira Barbosa (France, Portugal) North American premiereMonday, April 9: MARLINA THE MURDERER IN FOUR ACTS directed by Mouly Surya (Indonesia, France, Malaysia, Thailand) New England premiereSunday, April 16: STREAKER directed by Peter Luisi (Switzerland) East Coast premiereMonday, April 23: WHAT WILL PEOPLE SAY directed by Iram Haq (Norway, Germany, Sweden) East Coast premiereMonday, April 30: DISAPPEARANCE directed by Ali Asgari (Iran, Qatar)Monday, May 7: UNDER THE TREE directed by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson (Iceland) New England premiereMonday, May 14: DJAM directed by Tony Gatlif (France) North American premiere; preceded by an optional dinner featuring Greek cuisine catered by My Other Kitchen at 6PM at the theater.Sponsors of the 2018 series include the Boston Portuguese Festival, the Camoes Institute, and the Consulate General of France in Boston (Nation Sponsors), and East Boston Savings Bank and Whole Foods Market (Annual Capital Sponsors).

About Belmont, MA
Belmont Massachusetts is a quiet, affluent, residential community located on the western suburban corridor of Boston on the divides between the Charles and Mystic Rivers. Until the early 19th century, Belmont was largely an agricultural town.

Belmont was then that the turnpike and railroad linked the area to Boston which stimulated the creation of several large estates. A Belmont farmer was the first to import and breed Holstein Cows and an estate in Belmont sparked the first use of hothouses to grow fruit and vegetables. The gardens under glass were so successful that they produced enough fruit to make the town first in the country in the value of fruit products and second in the country for vegetables.

Belmont residents are proud of their quiet, well-mannered and small 4.6 square mile community and are very civic minded.
