FILM: Jueves de Cine

Thursday, February 22, 8-10 PM

Rutgers Cinema, Livingston Campus

This month's screening features Kekszakallu (Bluebeard), a 2016 film directed by Gaston Solnicki that chronicles the coming-of-age of a group of female teenagers in Argentina. Loosely inspired by Bluebeard's Castle, the Hungarian one-act opera by Béla Bartók and Béla Balázs, the film seeks to attain the "atmosphere and horror" of the original opera, yet with its own characters.

Presented by the Center for Latin American Studies, Jueves de Cine is a monthly series that features recently award-winning films in Latin American cinema.

The Center for Latino Arts and Culture's (CLAC) was established in 1992 to research, document, interpret and promote Latin@, Hispanic, Caribbean, and Latin American arts and culture. CLAC seeks to build a student-centered, learning community where students can better integrate experiential, academic and service learning about Latino arts and culture in order to become strong leaders and responsible global citizens. We advocate for the wellbeing of our students and work to create effective access to University services and resources. Through dynamic collaboration with other academic and student affairs units, the Center works to enhance Latino student recruitment, retention and successful graduation at Rutgers University.
