The World View Film series, hosted by Global & Cultural Affairs in ARTS Missoula, is back at the Roxy Theater, featuring four movies about "Cultures in Words": films which reveal the power of the written world to change the world. Following each free screening, Humanities MT speaker Marisa Diaz-Waian will facilitate a community conversation, inspired by questions raised in the movie. The conversations aim to create a space for thoughtful dialogue, reflection, and sharing.  

For decades, journalist Jep Gambardella has charmed and seduced his way through the glittering nightlife of Rome. Since the legendary success of his only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and elite social circles. But on his sixty-fifth birthday, Jep unexpectedly finds himself taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the lavish nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome itself, in all its monumental glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty. Featuring sensuous cinematography, a lush score, and an award-winning central performance by the great Toni Servillo, this transporting experience by the brilliant Italian director Paolo Sorrentino is a breathtaking Felliniesque tale of decadence and lost love.
