“Beyond Borders,” a 2003 U.S./German film directed by Martin Campbell, will be screened Friday, Sept. 7, as part of the International Film Series.
The series is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of Davis and International House. Doors at I-House, 10 College Park, open at 7:30 p.m. and the film begins promptly at 8 p.m.
There is no charge, but donations are accepted with gratitude to help cover the cost of DVD rental, facilities use and refreshments.
This film depicts the horrible conditions of refugee camps and the crises that create the extreme need for these centers of displaced persons. This film, shot in Namibia (representing Ethiopia), Thailand (representing Cambodia) and Canada (representing Chechnya), makes a valiant attempt at engaging the audience by weaving in a romance between Angelina Jolie as Sarah Jordan and Clive Owen as Nick Callahan, working for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
It is rated R for language and war-related violence.
