Spanish Language Film Festival, "The Boss, Anatomy of a Crime" (Argentina- Venezuela, 2014

April 1, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Based on a true story, "The Boss, Anatomy of a Murder", is a neo-realistic portrait of the inhumane work environment, and the power imbalances existing between worker and employer. The multiple award-winning film tells the unsettling story of Hermógenes, a humble illiterate farmhand who arrives in Buenos Aires in search of a job. When Don Latuda puts him in charge of one of his butcher shops he is extremely grateful. In exchange, he forces him to disguise and sell rotten meat while subjecting him, by means of pressure and extortion, to a modern day slavery situation.

Spanish Language Film Festival, "Barefoot in the Kitchen" (Spain, 2015)

April 1, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Co-produced by Pedro Almodóvar’s production company El Deseo and veteran Spanish producer Enrique Cerezo, this illuminating survey was put together by Diego 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 portrayed the evolution of women from the 1930s to the present day, using fragments from 180 movies. Galán demonstrates how landmarks in the recent history of Spain can be directly indicated by shifts in social mores in cinema.
