The students and staff who showed up seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves," said Dorris Keih, who is from the Office of Institutional Diversity and was in charge of the event. "This is the second year we have participated in the film festival and I am very proud that University of West Georgia has stepped up as a co-sponsor."
The two films that were highlighted this year were the films Donor and Hospitalite. The first film that was shown on Oct. 11, Donor a film set in the Philippines, was directed by Mark Meily and was shot in Tagalog, but contained English subtitles. The film is about a woman named Lizette who sells pirated DVD's, and eventually decides to sell her kidney to a wealthy Arabian kidney patient. However, she experiences many obstacles and roadblocks throughout the movie, one of them being an announcement of a change in the law which bans organ transplants between Filipinos and foreigners.
