Two years after its first edition, the Gustavus Hispanic Film Festival is back! All six screenings are free and open to the public, and will take place at Wallenberg 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 fourth week, we are screening Venezuelan drama Pelo malo/Bad Hair (Mariana Rondón, 2013). Junior is a 9-year-old boy who lives in a tough slum in Caracas that is no home for the weak. His obsession with straightening his naturally curly hair for a school photoshoot raises alarm in his family—so does his way of looking to a handsome teen who works at a newsstand in the neighborhood. Growing up was never easy. More info at the Spanish Film Club website.
The screening will be introduced by Professor Ana Adams (MLLC/Spanish). After the film, all guests are invited to stay for a panel discussion. There'll be popcorn as well!
