Carnegie Mellon University's International Film Festival 2013 resumes tonight with "Blood in the Mobile."

The event, sponsored by the Humanities Center, has a theme of "Faces of Media" and selections designed to provoke questions -- and conversations -- about how global media impacts society and vice versa.

Admission, $5 for seniors and students, $8 for others. Tickets at the door and in advance at www.cmu.edu/faces/ where you can also find more information about shorts, receptions and moderated discussions.

Here is the lineup for the second week, with festival concluding April 13.

"Blood in the Mobile" -- Documentary about the connection between mobile phones and the civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Director Frank Poulsen gained access to Congo's largest tin mine, controlled by different armed groups, where children work for days in narrow mine tunnels to dig out the minerals that end up in our phones. 7 p.m. April 3, CMU's McConomy Auditorium.
