At the Movies… Art Inspired by Global Cinema, Part 3

“Fable” ($100) by Erdem Yalçin (Turkey)

It’s awards season in Hollywood, and while everyone in Showbiz is making predictions about which movie will win the top prize, we’ve been paying particular attention to all the foreign films. What can we say – we love movies from around the world almost as much as we love art from around the world.

We’ve rounded up a list of the year’s most celebrated international films and present them here with a sampling of art by Saatchi Online artists working in the countries that produced the films.

Pop some popcorn and take a trip with us around the world in the final part of our three-part series. (Be sure to check out Part One and Part Two, if you haven’t already!).
