The directors of the Brigham Young University International Cinema and their special guests discuss the films showing at BYU’s International Cinema--one of the longest running college cinema programs of its kind in the world. IC screens over eighty of the best contemporary and classic films from all over the world each year with support from the BYU College of Humanities, and you can get background about the films here. "From the Booth" is a great way to get insights into foreign films, the history of cinema, and about what is going on in the world of media studies.
