Two years after its first edition, theGustavus Hispanic Film Festivalis back! All six screenings are free and open to the public, and will take place atWallenberg Auditorium on Mondays at 7pm. See attached flyer for dates and more information, and tell everyone you see, both on and off campus!

For our fifth week, we are screening Argentinian drama La sombra azul/The Blue Shadow (2012). For this session, we will be honored with the presence of director Sergio Schmucler at Gustavus.

Javier Rodr??guez is a policeman who has suffered torture during the brutal 1976 Argentinian military regime after being accused of belonging to a left-wing guerrilla group. When he returns to his country in 1994, democracy has been restored, but he is granted no justice and needs to leave again. More info at the film's website.

The screening will be introduced by Professor Beatriz Torres (Comm Studies). After the film, all guests are invited to stay for a discussion with Professor Scott Ickes (History). There'll be popcorn as well!
