Tuesday January 29, 2008
12 - 1 pm
Lunch provided
The Bechtel International Center is located at 584 Capistrano Way across from the Faculty Club and the Bridge.

Each Winter the I- Center invites members of our international community to join us to discuss their field of interest or their life experiences. We invite you to join us for lunch and to discuss some of the different ways we communicate with each other.

The first speaker in this series will be Jasmina Bojic, Lecturer/Film Critic/Founder and Executive Director UNA Film Festival. Ms. Bojic has taught at Stanford for the last fourteen years and has been working as a journalist more than twenty-five years, covering many political and cultural events, including the Academy Awards, Cannes Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Golden Globe and Spirit Awards interviewing noted world politicians, scientists, directors, producers and actors.

Ms. Bojic has served on juries at many international film festivals and has extensive connections with filmmakers and the film industry worldwide. She has written three feature-length screenplays and worked as a producer/director on several documentaries and TV Programs dealing with human rights issues. Ten years ago she conceptualized and organized an international documentary film festival, United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) at Stanford University, which became Traveling Film Festival in year 2000.

As part of her presentation Ms. Bojic will screen the short film "Death on a Friendly Border" (Director/Producer: Rachel Antell) which puts a human face to the international tragedy of the average of one person per day who dies trying to cross the southern border of the United States. We will hear the story of one woman's journey from her impoverished village in Mexico into the US desert with her 18 month old baby. And we hear the stories of the migrants, the Border Patrol agents and the activists for whom the militarization of the border has become the governing reality of their lives.
