NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art, in collaboration with the Global Film Initiative (GFI), presents Global Lens 2010, the seventh annual touring film exhibition conceived to encourage filmmaking in countries with developing film communities, in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters at MoMA from January 14 through 29, 2010. The selection of eight programs, each from a different country, includes films developed with seed money from GFI, and represents a concise survey of contemporary filmmaking from areas where local economic realities make such expensive and technology-driven endeavors a challenge. Accomplished, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the films are also deeply rooted in the social and political realities of the countries where their talented and resourceful makers live and set their stories. Global Lens 2010 is organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art.

Global Lens 2010 continues the annual program’s goal of supporting the distribution of unique and critically acclaimed cinematic works from around the world, this year with four U.S. and two North American premieres,. Among them are the U.S. premieres of Bui Thac Chuyen's provocative Vietnamese drama Adrift (2009), which will have a weeklong run at MoMA from January 14 through 20; Masquerades (2008), directed by Lyes Salem, which was Algeria's official submission to the foreign language category of the 2009 Academy Awards; and Granaz Moussavi's Iranian independent, My Tehran for Sale (2009). The North American premieres include Rajesh Shera’s Ocean of an Old Man (2008), the first film ever to be shot on India's Andaman and Nicobar islands; and emerging Uruguayan director Alejandro Gerber Bicecci's El cuarto de Leo (Leo’s Room) (2009). Chinese director Zhang Chi’s visually poetic Dixia de Tiankong (The Shaft) (2008), which was shown at the 2009 New Directors/New Films festival, a longstanding collaboration between MoMA and Film Society of Lincoln Center, will screen in a weeklong run from January 21 through 27.

Global Lens 2010 includes a wide range of international films with vastly different directorial styles, geographic settings, and cultural narratives. After its run at MoMA, which is the inaugural venue for Global Lens 2010, it will tour 35 cities and play in art- and community-based theaters throughout the United States and Canada during the course of the year. The schedule will be posted at
