Spanish Film Club Series: HERE AND THERE (Aquí y Allá)January 26, 2015
A CLA Scholarly Intersections event (co-sponsored by: FEA, GEOG, Latin American Studies, RGRLL, The Spanish Graduate Student Association and the University Library)
Antonio Méndez Esparza’s directorial debut radiantly captures the complex homecoming of a loving father. In an unexpected take on the traditional immigrant story, Pedro returns home to a small mountain village in Guerrero, Mexico, after years of working in New York. He finds his daughters older and more distant than he imagined; His wife still has the same smile. The villagers think this year’s crop will be bountiful and there is work in a growing city nearby. But the locals are wise to a life of insecurity, and their thoughts are often of family members or opportunities far away, north of the border.
This event is FREE and open to the campus community and general public.
