Global Film Series

The Global Film Series at NC State is a collaborative initiative to bring a variety of international and globally-focused films to campus. Interdisciplinary partners across campus select films from current releases, documentaries and classics highlighting the joys and struggles of the global community in which we live. These films also provide a venue for faculty and student organizations to share their global experiences and expertise with a wider campus and community audience. All films feature an academic introduction and an opportunity for reflection at the film's conclusion.

The Spring 2019 Global Film Series is presented by the Office of Global Engagement and NCSU Libraries with sponsorship from campus partners including: University Scholars Program, Program in International Studies, Global Engagement Institute, Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies , Middle East Studies, and NC State Global Health.

All films are free and open to the community.

Check back soon for our Fall 2019 lineup!

Final fall lineup will be announced in early August.

January 15, 6:30 p.m., D. H. Hill Library Auditorium

The True Cost

The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye-opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes. Sponsored by the Program in International Studies.
Language: English
PG-13 for thematic elements and disturbing images
