Film org adds to slate

The Global Film Initiative, the New York-based organization developed to promote cross-cultural understanding through cinema, has acquired four films to complete its inaugural slate.

Pics are “Angel on the Right” by Djamshed Usmonov, “Nothing” from Cuban director Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti, Filipino filmmaker Joel Lamangan’s “Wretched Lives” and Algerian director Yamina Bachir-Chouikh’s “Rachida.”

“These final four films, like the others previously announced, have enjoyed enormous international success and represent the best filmmaking occurring in the developing world right now,” chairwoman Susan Coulter said. “Now that the slate is complete, the real work begins — that of making sure the films are presented to general audiences and high school students alike in a context that delivers both entertainment and a real understanding of our neighbors from around the world.”

Pics will be released to the paying public in conjunction with arts-related organizations and educational partners and also shown to high school students.
