On the Radar: Global Lens Film Series

Welcome to On the Radar, where we preview up-and-coming arts events to mark your calendar for. Today’s edition is next week's one-night-only screening by the Gasparilla Film Festival.

The 2009 Global Lens Film Series continues with a screening of the Ecuadorian drama My Time Will Come.  The film, a dark tale of a morgue physician who is better equipped emotionally to deal with the dead than the living, should also serve as a visually compelling introduction to Ecuador’s capital city of Quito. My Time is directed by Víctor Arregui, who made some waves at 2003 film-fests with his debut film Outside, and screens only once at the Tampa Pitcher Show. Sun., Aug., 30, 2:00pm, Tampa Pitcher Show, 14416 N. Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa, $5, free for GIFF members, gasparillafilmfestival.com. —Joe Bardi
