CINEMA SEASON TO PUSH BACK FRONTIERS

 

The University of Lincoln’s series of Spanish and Latin American films returns for a new season on Monday.

 

The Robert Rodriguez film ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ is the first offering in the series which this semester will explore political, geographical and emotional frontiers.

 

Set on the frontier of Texas and Mexico, ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ looks at how loyalties and identities change when people cross from one region to another.

 

A post-modern ironic look at American views of the south from the north, the film asks big questions about the ideology of ‘good versus evil’.

 

Among the films lined up for the rest of the season are the allegorical Chilean drama ‘La Frontera’ (8th March), ‘Cidade de Deus’ (City of God, 15th March), ‘Salvador’ (22nd March), Tierra y Libertad’ (Land and Freedom, 29th March), ‘El Norte’ (The North, 19th April) and ‘La Haine’ (Hate, 26th April).

 

The films are in Spanish, Catalan, Portuguese or French with English subtitles.

 

All films start at 7.00pm in the Jackson Lecture Theatre at the university’s Brayford Pool campus. Admission is free and refreshments will be served in The Shed on campus after each screening.
