In the Shadows: Undocumented Immigration in America
Thursday, Sept. 14, 6:30 p.m., Roesch Library Collab
“In the Shadows,” a modern day “Grapes of Wrath,” follows Jairo and his extended
family of undocumented immigrants from their home in Mexico to a dairy farm in
the United States in search of a better life and a means to send money home to their
struggling families. The film looks at current immigration issues.
Visiones: Latino Art and Culture
Thursday, Sept. 21, 6:30 p.m., Roesch Library Collab
The award-winning “Visiones: Latino Art and Culture” is a journey through the
music, words, dance, painting and performance of rich Latino cultures made more
complex and fascinating by their history.
Even the Rain
Thursday, Sept. 28, 6:30 p.m., Roesch Library Collab
“Even the Rain” sets up an intriguing dialogue about Spanish imperialism through
incidents taking place some 500 years apart, while examining the personal belief
systems of a film crew headed by director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and
producer Costa (Luis Tosar) who arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about the
conquest of Latin America.
