Latin American and Spanish Film Festival


Tuesday, April 24 at 5:00pm in TE 156.

Brazilian poet, Narlan Matos will be at SU to share some of his poetry in Portuguese. We will also hear translations in Spanish, French and English (and the English translations will be on the screen for each reading). Between poems, Matos will discuss what motivates his verses and Dr. Bañuelos Montes and Dr. Sally Perret will discuss what is at stake when translating a poem. Event open to the public.

The Sobremesa activities varies, from reading poetry in groups and making cardboard books to making food together in the Philosophy House kitchen or the International house.
  • Intercambio: Summer bilingual Spanish conversation group for Spanish majors and minors with Spanish-speaking community members. Students speak in Spanish for half the time and English the other half to allow the community members to practice English too.
  • Film Festival: Francophone films (Tournées) or Latin American and Spanish films (Pragda). These events, open to the public, are made possible thanks to grants from the French and the Spanish embassies and are organized by the Faculty of the Department of Modern Languages and Intercultural Studies. Each festival shows 4-5 films. We offer one festival a year, alternating between French and Spanish-speaking movies. Film' introductions and discussions are led by SU faculty.
