The Global Visions Film Series will bring eight foreign films to UND beginning at 7 p.m. Tuesday with an award-winning film about a young North African immigrant's adventures in Paris.

All films will be at 7 p.m. on various Tuesday evenings between now until May 1 at the UND Memorial Union Lecture Bowl. The series, free and open to the public, is partially funded by the Multicultural Awareness Committee.

The first movie Tuesday - "Games of Love and Chance" (2005) - is a French film by Abdellatif Kechiche that offers a graceful and sympathetic look at how the lives of teenagers intersect, according to a news release.

Krimo, a young actor, schemes his way into acting in a school play to get closer to the diva-esque lead actress, says an online plot summary. This is not your typical high-school comedy, however, but a reality-based romance set in the housing complexes that ring Paris. The movie is not rated.

Other movies will be:
