Earth

Director: Deepa Mehta

...Earth is based on Parsee novelist Bapsi Sidhwa’s novel about an eight-year-old girl growing up during the 1947 partition of India. One half of the dilogy by Deepa Mehta.

Passage to India

Director: David Lean

Whatever happened in the Marabar caves? Based on the classic by E.M. Forster. Button-down Brits fumble around with Indian mysticism. Gorgeous scenery.

Strawberry & Chocolate

Director: Tomás Gutiérrez Alea & Juan Carlos Tabío

A love affair between two men that overcomes complex obstacles.

I am Cuba

Director: Mikheil Kalatozishvili

Made by a Russian in 1964, this is a wildly shot glimpse of the Cuban revolution.

Zorba the Greek

Director: Michael Cacoyannis

Check out both the book and movie. Though a bit cliché, the novel and film offer insight into the Greek way of life and glimpses of some tucked-away Cretan treasures.
