The University of North Dakota's Global Visions Film Series
Spring 2014 Film Roster
The Global Visions Film Series continues this spring exploring a variety of themes that include the richness of human connection and relationships, the wonder and inspiration to be found in the natural world, the compassion and complexity of emotions experience by people making choices to improve the lives of others, and the comedic relief that can be found despite the stresses of everyday life in today's rapidly changing technological world.
The Global Vision Film Series (GVFS) is a forum that promotes diversity in North Dakota through screening award winning national and international films. The GVFS is sponsored by the Black Student Association, The Era Bell Thompson Multicultural Center, and the Anthropology Department at UND. The series is partially funded by SOFA (the Student Organization Funding Association), good will donations, and financial assistance from the sponsoring departments at UND. The goal of the film series is to provide the university and the Grand Forks community with the opportunity to experience films of exceptional quality from around the world, providing a broader understanding of, and appreciation for, the breadth, variety, and commonality of the human family. Many university faculty across disciplines assign GV films as extra credit assignments for students. Each film screed this season is a winner of multiple awards at both international and national film festivals.
STREET PARKING OR PAY PARKING IS AVAILABLE
All films begin at 7 p.m. on Tuesday's between February and May, 2014.
All films are free and open to the public, students, faculty, and staff. A $1 good will donation is requested but not mandatory.

Dr. bell hooks is a noted cultural critic, commentator, and feminist, is Distinguished Professor in Residence in Appalachian Studies at Berea College. Born Gloria Jean Watkins in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, she has chosen the lower case pen name bell hooks, based on the names of her mother and grandmother, to emphasize the importance of the substance of her writing as opposed to who she is. Prior to accepting the Distinguished Professorship at Berea College and returning to Kentucky, bell hooks has taught at Yale, Oberlin College, and City College of New York. Educated at UC- Santa Cruz, UW- Madison and Stanford, Dr. bell hooks is the author of over thirty books, many of which have focused on issues of social class, race, and gender. In 2013, she published the award-winning poetry collection Appalachian Elegy and the critical text,Writing Beyond Race. Most recently, hooks published "Dig Deep: A Response to Lean In" which appeared as a special feature for The Feminist Wire. She continues to cultivate intellectual community dialogues by hosting dynamic events through The bell hooks Institute.
