There is nothing so engaging, so true to life as film to transport students to unfamiliar places. This textbook introduces foreign cultures and global concepts through 13 award-winning films from around the world: Osama (Afghanistan); Persepolis (Iran/France); Water (India); Beijing Bicycle (China); Tokyo Sonata (Japan); Tsotsi (South Africa); Hotel Rwanda (Rwanda); War Dance (Uganda); Central Station (Brazil); March of the Penguins (Antarctica/France); Sophie Scholl: The Final Days (Germany); The Counterfeiters (Austria); Pearl (U.S.A., Chickasaw Nation).

Each is chosen for its richness as a basis for discussions in history, geography, economics, government, literature, music, and art. This multi-disciplinary primer encourages critical thinking and group activities and offers new perspectives on international affairs.
