BOONE—The Global Film Series, a cooperative campus effort to provide a blend of cinema from around the world, will present “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. in I.G. Greer Auditorium. Admission is free.
The film is the first Iranian vampire western ever made. Director and writer Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut is a joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography. Its influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels and horror films. Filmed in black and white, the movie was called “a new vampire classic” by critics and “one of the best films of the year.” It is presented in Farsi with English subtitles.
It depicts a skateboarding vampire who roams the streets of a small, Iranian town stalking men who disrespect women.
The film is co-sponsored by iPALS, Office of International Education and Development, and Belk Library and Information Commons and is part of International Education Week.
