Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame

films in series

Thousands of films are released each year around the world, but only a fraction are acquired for American distribution, and a smaller fraction still make their way to Ithaca. Cornell Cinema travels to film festivals and prescreens hundreds of titles each year to bring you some of the best of the fests, films that wouldn't otherwise screen in Ithaca. Make use of this ongoing series to see the films that critics are writing about and film festival juries are awarding, films that point to new hotbeds of national cinemas and rising international directors and actors, and as always, offer fascinating insights into global cultures.
