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 last week, we are screening Spanish drama Wilaya/Tears of Sand (Pablo P??rez Rosado, 2012). Set in the disputed territory of Western Sahara, Wilaya tells the story of Fatimetu, the daughter of Sahrawi refugee parents. They sent her to live with a foster family in Spain, and when her mother dies, Fatimetu comes back for a few days and needs to take major decisions: will she go back to his comfortable life in Europe or will she take root in his native country, still plagued by decades of conflict and lack of international recognition? More info at the Spanish Film Club website.

The screening will be introduced by Professor Dar??o S??nchez Gonz??lez (MLLC/Spanish). After the film, all guests are invited to stay for a discussion with Professor Se??n Easton (Classics/Peace Studies). There'll be popcorn as well!
