High Museum Film Series: Melting Pot 

Canadian and Tawainese Cinema

You could always head over to Buford Highway to get a little taste of Atlanta's multicultural stew, or you could hightail it to that other emporium of artistic globalism, the High Museum. In addition to its popular 22-years-runnning Latin American Film Festival, the High's media arts curator, Linda Dubler, has offered a veritable smorgasbord of programs devoted to the cinema of Iran, Hong Kong, Poland, Turkey, France and Denmark, among others. Dubler offers the ultimate in cinematic fusion throughout February with two new film series, CELEBRATING TAIWAN'S CINEMA and CANADA'S BEST. This Fri.-Sat., FEB. 9-10, features Fleeing by Night and Eve and the Fire Horse, from Taiwan and Canada, respectively. One of this doppelganger festival's highlights is Taiwanese auteur Hou Hsiao-Hsien's Three Times (pictured), a trio of vignettes set in 1911, 1966 and 2005, which examines relationships in each of the different periods. From Canada, Marion Bridge features the always-excellent Molly Parker as a recovering addict and the youngest heart tending to her ailing mother in rural Nova Scotia. Through Feb. 24. $5. Fri.-Sat., 8 p.m. 1280 Peachtree St. 404-733-4444. www.high.org.
