Event Description
In Hernan Jimenez’s bittersweet film El Regreso (Costa Rica, 2012), 30-year old Antonio returns to Costa Rica following a decade spent in New York. Unable to run away as usual, he is forced to confront the realities he desperately struggled to put in the past: a broken family, an ailing father, a violent country, and long lost friends. El Regreso is screened in celebration of KU’s 60-year partnership with Universidad de Costa Rica. Discussion and reception immediately following. Running time: 95 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
