Race, Gender, and Political Dissent: Latin American & Caribbean Film Today

The first Williams Latin American and Caribbean Film Festival, organized by the Department of Romance Languages, begins tonight with Santa y Andrés  by Carlos Lechuga (2016). The film relates the improbable friendship between a revolutionary country girl and a noncompliant gay writer she has to watch over for three consecutive days. It was censored in Cuba by ministerial decision but has flourished on the international film festival circuit. In Spanish with English subtitles.

The festival will continue on April 16 with Carpinteros / Woodpeckers by José María Cabral (2017, Dominican Republic)) and on April 23  with La Soledad/ The Solitude by Jorge Thielen Armand (2016, Venezuela).  These are compelling and provocative tales of survival, resistance, determination, and transgression, some of them inspired by real events. 


Monday, April 2 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm
