Reel borders: Transnational Cinema in the 21st Century

UConn will host a one-day film seminar in conjunction with the Reel
Ireland Film Festival on Saturday, April 5, 2008. The theme will be

studies, the concept of the transnational artist becomes increasingly
more important. Themes that will be considered include but are not
