        For a special presentation, I am looking for films set in last
twenty or so years that represent moments of crosscultural contact and/or
globalization.  I know these are huge abstractions, one reason they are
hard to search on conventional websites.  Local Hero (Bill Forsyth, 1983)
may be one paradigm.  Would especially like to see crosscultural contact
that is not U.S. dominated.  Europeanization, for example, of the
countries of Europe or Japanese film on Japan in America.
An additional screen if needed would be women as central players.  Even
just good moments in larger films would be useful.  Thanks in advance and
please feel free to reply directly to save the time of others on list.
