LEWISTON — The Global Lens film series at Bates College will continue with “Possible Lives,” a film about grief and letting go, by Argentinean director Sandra Gugliotta, on Friday, Oct. 16, and Sunday, Oct. 18, in Olin Arts Center.

When Clara’s husband disappears on a trip in remote Patagonia, she sets
off to find him — but, instead, finds a man who looks exactly like her
husband but has a completely different life. Convinced this man is,
indeed, her husband, she calls off her search, even as police uncover a
body that may be that of her husband. Drawing on some of the world’s
most dramatic scenery, the film is noted for its cinematography as well
as its story and acting.

“Possible Lives” runs 80 minutes and is in Spanish with English subtitles. The 2007 film will be shown at 8 p.m. Admission is $5.

“Possible Lives” is Gugliotta’s second feature film. A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, she studied film at Escuela Nacional de Experimentación y Realización Cinematográfica in Madrid. Her first full-length film, “A Lucky Day,” won the Caligari Film Award at the Berlin International Film Festival.

The annual series is produced by the Global Film Initiative to promote
cross-cultural understanding. To learn more about “Possible Lives” and the entire Global Lens series, visit www.globalfilm.org.
