Travel the World with the New Season of Global Voices!

Posted on May 27, 2014

ITVS is excited to announce the lineup for the seventh season of Global Voices, the critically acclaimed international documentary series premiering on the WORLD Channel (check local listings).


Travel the world from your living room with the latest season of Global Voices. Airing on the WORLD Channel, season seven kicks off on June 1st with 18 weeks of international documentaries made by independent filmmakers from around the world. The seventh season of Global Voices opens with the U.S. premiere of Miss Nikki & The Tiger Girls, filmmaker Juliet Lamont’s intimate portrait of a spirited young Australian band manager as she tries to empower Myanmar's first all-girl band to speak out in one of the world's most repressive regimes. If you think it's hard making it as a female pop group, try doing it with a military dictatorship breathing down your neck!

From the traffic-clogged streets of Cairo in Before the Spring, After the Fall to Here Comes Uncle Joe's remote village in South Korea, this season of Global Voices shares compelling stories from a global perspective with an intimate, upfront view. Learn more about the season lineup here. In addition to the WORLD Channel broadcast, each episode will also be available online, beginning the day after broadcast, for a limited time at
