CLAC EVENTS!   A biweekly news blast that promotes community-wide events targeting students, faculty, staff, and alumni at Rutgers University. Unless noted, all events are free and open to the public.

EXHIBITION: Las Tres Hermanas Exhibition

Now through December 14, 9 AM-5 PM

CLAC @ 172 College Avenue

Tour our special exhibition, Las Tres Hermanas: Art, Education and Activism, honoring Puerto Rican activists sisters Elba Cabrera, Lillian López, and Dr. Evelina Antonetty. Las Tres Hermanas tells the story of three sisters, Evelina, Lillian and Elba, who profoundly changed the cultural and political landscape in New York—especially the Bronx—through their passion and advocacy, and had left a lasting legacy in their community. They understood that maintaining and expressing one’s culture was an act of resistance and an affirmation of Puerto Rican identity.

Cosponsored by the Department of Latino and Caribbean Studies.

WORKSHOP: A Series of Fortunate Handicraft Events

Thursday, December 6, 7-9 PM

Biomedical Engineering Building, BME-122 (Busch Campus)

Seeking to foster a sense of community for minorities pursuing a career in STEM, this workshop provides a space for students to relax from their hectic schedule and network with fellow students. During the event, we will discuss Native American and Latino culture through interactive documentaries, as we make crafts to take home at the end of the night. Some of the items we are going to be making are: dream catchers, tassel key chains, and friendship bracelets!

Presented by Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS). Dinner will be provided.

FILM: A Fantastic Woman (Chile, 2017) directed by Sebastián Lelio

Thursday, December 6, 8-10 PM

Rutgers Cinema, Livingston Campus, Theater 1

In Spanish with English subtitles

Marina and Orlando are in love and planning for the future. Marina is a young waitress and aspiring singer. Orlando is 20 years older than her, and owns a printing company. After celebrating Marina's birthday one evening, Orlando falls seriously ill. Marina rushes him to the emergency room, but he passes away just after arriving at the hospital. Instead of being able to mourn her lover, suddenly Marina is treated with suspicion. The doctors and Orlando's family don't trust her. A woman detective investigates Marina to see if she was involved in his death. Orlando's ex-wife forbids her from attending the funeral. And to make matters worse, Orlando's son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Marina is a trans woman and for most of Orlando's family, her sexual identity is an aberration, a perversion. So Marina struggles for the right to be herself. She battles the very same forces that she has spent a lifetime fighting just to become the woman she is now - a complex, strong, forthright and fantastic woman.

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.
