MORE FILMS FOR LATINO FANS

 

The University of Lincoln’s annual Latino cinema club continues next week after a successful start.

 

The films form part of the final-year subject matter for European Business and Marketing students and around 200 international students are expected at upcoming showings.

 

The next film in the series which will be shown on Monday 27th September at 7pm is titled ‘Belle Epoque’, directed by Fernando Trueba.

 

According to Trueba, who also produced the film, “’Belle Epoque’ is about the discovery of life, and all of the things that make life interesting.”

 

All of the films screened will be in Spanish or French with English subtitles.

 

“This year’s theme will depict tales of laughter, tears and panic,” said the university’s English languages co-ordinator Andy Daglish.

 

Future films in the series include the psychological drama ‘Lovers’, the love story ‘Betty Blue’, and the evocative animation ‘Belleville Rendezvous’.

 

Films are screened in the Jackson Lecture Theatre at 7pm every Monday until 15th November. Entry is free to all showings and everyone is welcome to attend.
