CLAS Film Series

 

Please Note: Due to COVID-19, we will be screening all of the films via digital platforms (Vimeo or the film distributor's website) for the FALL 2020 and SPRING 2021 semesters. For select films, you must be located within the U.S. to watch them.

The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) is pleased to present the 2020-2021 Latin American Film Series. This series was curated by Luciana Lemos, a Brazilian GSPIA student with experience organizing independent film festivals. The topics vary from gender issues, race and ethnicity in Latin America and the Caribbean, to hopes and dreams for the future, and a reflection on the tensions between parental expectations and staying true to oneself.

The films will be screened approximately once per month. During the fall semester, films will be online due to the University's operating posture. Screenings will start at 6:00 pm. Please join us after the screening to participate in a discussion with actors, producers, directors, subject experts, and/or faculty. Please register for each film individually. The day of the film you will receive information about how to watch the film online as well as the link for a Zoom meeting to join the discussion after the film.
