Missing the Global Film Series? We invite you to join NC State Global and University Libraries for a Virtual Global Film Series!
Our staff selects a family-friendly international film that is free and easy to stream online from home. One of our amazing NC State faculty provides an academic introduction, just like at our in-person series, which is posted to this page. You watch/read the introduction and stream the film at your own convenience. After viewing the film, we invite you to submit questions for the faculty, which will be answered and posted below. Our first film selection is the 2017 Irish film Zoo.
Young Tom Hall (Art Parkinson) and his misfit friends fight to save “Buster” the baby elephant during the German air raid bombings of Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1941.
The film introduction is provided by Professor Charles C. Ludington, PhD, FRHistS, Teaching Associate Professor of History in the Department of History at North Carolina State University.
Genre: Action & Adventure, Kids & Family
Language: English (CC available)
The Global Film Series at NC State
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, staff, and students 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.
