Join us for screening of "Ella Es el Matador" (She Is the Matador), a film from Women Make Movies.
"For Spaniards — and for the world — nothing has expressed their country’s traditionally rigid gender roles more powerfully than the image of the male matador. Visually stunning and beautifully crafted, "Ella Es el Matador"...offers fascinating profiles of two female matadors currently in the arena...[who] are gender pioneers by necessity, confronting both bull and social code."
The screening will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Auditorium of the East Academic Building at Landmark College. The film is in Spanish and Italian with English subtitles. After the one-hour showing, Director of Student Activities, Emily North will facilitate a discussion of the film. The event is free and open to the public.
The Fall Film Series on Media Literacy is co-sponsored by the Landmark College Library and the Office of Student Activities.
