About the World View Film Series

In the fall of 2018, Global and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with The Roxy Theater inaugurated the World View Film Series, which screens four international movies (either foreign productions or with a focus on a country abroad) in the fall and four in the spring of each year. A five-person committee selects a seasonal focus and the corresponding films.

Udo Fluck hosts the evenings, every second Monday of the month, at 7 PM at The Roxy Theater, located at 718 S. Higgins Avenue. Local artist Courtney Blazon designs the official poster for each fall and spring season.

In 2020, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, they pivoted and offered the World View Film Series as a virtual event, selecting and recommending films on streaming platforms. As of the Fall 2021, they are returning to the Roxy Theater.

About Marisa Diaz-Waian

Marisa Diaz-Waian is the Founder and Director of Merlin CCC, Board Member & Education Committee Chair for the Philosophy Learning &Teaching Organization (PLATO), and a speaker for Humanities Montana.

A public philosopher and “generalist” by nature, training, and practice, Marisa happily “hangs her hat” on Merlin Nature Preserve, where she lives and serves as its trustee and steward, listening to as much jazz and reggae as possible. 

She has a special interest in ethics and ancient philosophy, as well as existentialism, humor, and “fuzzy” things at the intersection of philosophy and psychology.  (She also really loves wolves, the ocean, art, dancing, and doing things outside of the box).  Her work focuses on philosophy in the community, across all ages and backgrounds, and frequently involves an interdisciplinary, environmental, and intergenerational bent.
