Event Description
¡Vamos! Spanish Language Film Festival brings contemporary international films to Lawrence, celebrating the vibrant film cultures of Chile, Mexico, Costa Rica, Spain and more. This month-long film festival will explore the history we live, the stories we share and the world we create. The Festival’s opening and closing films screen at the Spencer Museum of Art. For the full schedule visit film.ku.edu. Xingu (2012) is based on a true story. During their exploration of central Brazil in 1943, the Villas-Bôas brothers encounter the Xingu Indians, and devote their lives to preserving Xingu culture. Join us for refreshments and a post-screening discussion with Dr. Luciano Tosta, professor of Spanish & Portuguese, University of Kansas.
