See this film: Nana @ ArtsEmerson at the Paramount Center

There's a whole world of great movies out there that we'll probably never see, not even in a cinema-savvy town like Boston, unless we have the means to go to, say, the Locarno Film Festival or the Istanbul International Independent Film Festival. French director Valérie Massadian won top prizes at both of those events for her debut film Nana (2011), and thanks to ArtsEmerson's "Festival Focus" series you can see why. The story of the sturdy four-year-old of the title, an urchin with an absentee mother who fends for herself in the ruggedly beautiful Perche region, accomplishes one of cinema's most difficult and exquisite tasks: capturing the point of view of a child. It screens Friday, May 25 at 6:45 pm and Saturday, May 26 at 8 pm at the Paramount Center, 559 Washington St, Boston | $10; $7.50 seniors; $5 students | or 617.824.8400.
