Trial access now available to the Alexander Street Press resource 'Asian Film Online'

Asian Film Online is an online streaming video collection of nearly 600 narrative feature films, documentaries, and shorts. With Asian voices addressing Asian issues, and through works selected by Asian film experts, the collection offers highly relevant perspectives and insights. Its themes—such as modernity, globalization, national identity, female agency, inequalities in opportunity amid social and political unrest, and cultural and sexual identity—are central to any meaningful discussion of Asian culture.

Inside the resource, you’ll find films from Iran, Lebanon, and Iraq, however the majority of the films included are from East and South Asia. To access the resource: http://search.alexanderstreet.com/asiv
