Around the World in 80 Days

80 Films, 80 Countries, 80 Days

Because I'm completely mad.

GENERALLY, I'm looking for movies that were 1) Produced in the country, 2) filmed in the country, 3) directed by someone from the country, and 4) primarily featuring actors from that country. However, there are some cases where I'll make an exception, as a few of the countries I've chosen don't have much of a film industry yet and so foreign production companies are often involved, etc. So a movie by a Cambodian director featuring Cambodian leads, but set and filmed in Paris, I'd still count, and I'm not gonna get into the identity politics, like "Oh, does it still count if the director was born in France? Are they Cambodian enough?"

Will begin as soon as I'm able to round everything up, but that's something of a doing. Any recommendations or help in obtaining them would be great.
