MiSU offers Northern Lights Film Series
With a grant from the North Dakota Humanities Council, Minot State University’s Department of Foreign Language rechristened its international film series, the Northern Lights Film Series. The grant allowed the department to screen films in the Global Lens Film Series, which is most often hosted at museums and art centers, according to Scott Sigel, assistant professor of Spanish. The film series was open to the community, allowing attendees to experience other points of view by seeing and discussing movies from many different countries and cultures.
