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 first week, we are screening Paraguayan/Argentinian film Guaran?? (Luis Zorraqu??n, 2016). Here is a brief synopsis from the Spanish Film Club website:

A heartfelt story, Guaran?? follows fisherman Atilio as he travels with his granddaughter Iara to Buenos Aires. His great desire is to have a grandson to transmit the Guaran?? culture. When he discovers that Iara's mother, Helena, is pregnant, he decides to go on a long journey and cross borders, with the aim to convince Helena to give birth in the Guarani land?

Directed by talent to watch Luis Zorraqu??n, Guaran?? features an outstanding script. Part road movie and part coming-of-age drama, the film portrays two generations of Paraguayans whose views of the world seem centuries apart. The long journey will make Atilio and Iara understand the real meaning of traditions and family bonds.

Join us! There'll be popcorn as well!
