Interdisciplinary Spanish Film Festival

The Interdisciplinary Film Festival, Coming of Age/La madurez is a six week series that will take place in room 105 of the Olin building, on Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m. from September 3rd through October 8th


This week's movie is a documentary entitled, Con la pata quebrada (movie trailer).  


"Co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar's production company El Deseo and veteran Spanish producer Enrique Cerezo, this illuminating survery was put together by Deigo Galán, a noted Spanish film critic and former director of San Sebastian Film Festival.  Reflecting changes in the political sphere, Barefoot in the Kitchen chronicles how Spanish cinema has portrayed the evolution of women from the 1930s to the present day, using film fragments from 180 movies.  Diego Galán demonstrates how landmarks in the recent history of Spain can be directly indicated by shifts in social mores in cinema.  By the time of All About My Mother (1999), women had turned the table on men and on cinematic sexism, present since the early days of the talkies." - Jaie Laplante, Miami International Film Festival. 


Professor Katy Ross will lead a discussion following the film.
