2013, 2015... And 2017: the Gustavus Latino Film Festival is back! This year, the films we have selected feature a common topic: life on the edge"in many different senses.

All five screenings are free and open to the public, and will take place at Wallenberg Auditorium on Mondays at 7pm. See attached flyer for all dates and more information, and tell everyone you see, both on and off campus!

For our fourth week, we are screening Spanish film Bajar?? (Eva Vila, 2013). Here is a brief synopsis from the Spanish Film Club website:

Eva Vila's first feature film B-Side (2008) screened at several film festivals such as Rotterdam, DocLisboa, Cali, Warsaw, Cagliari, and In-Edit Barcelona, as well as in the cycle of cinema of the National Gallery of Washington and New York University. The critics catalogued it as a "filmed jewel e(The Newspaper) "that will remind one of the emblems of what is known as a creative city e(The Avant-garde).

Vila's training as a musician and the Master in Art Critique that she holds, bring about the symbiosis between other arts and cinema that has helped her create audiovisual pieces like The Space of One Same (2009), portrait of the Catalan composer Josep Soler.

She has coordinated the Master in Documentary Filmmaking at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona since 2003, where she has worked in the development of projects side by side with renowned documentary filmmakers such as Joaquim Jord? or Jos?? Luis Guer??n. She has also taken part in the production of films from several recognized creators like Isaki Lacuesta, Mercedes ??varez, and Ricardo ??car, and she's worked in the collective films shot by Victor Kossakovsky, Claire Simon, Avi Mogravi, and Sergei Dvortsevoy.

Join us! There'll be popcorn as well!
