Join us for a screening and discussion of The Clan at the Coral Gables Art Cinemaon Wednesday, April 6th at 6:30 PM. Dr. Andrew Strycharski, FIU director of Film Studies, will lead the conversation about the film with the audience.
Acclaimed director Pablo Trapero gives us a gripping story based on the Puccio criminal family of Argentina. The patriarch of the family, Arquímedes Puccio, was once a hitman for the military. After the restoration of democracy in the early 1980s, Arquímedes becomes unemployed and resorts to kidnapping people for money.
Join us for The Secret in their Eyes, the third film in our International Noir screening and discussion Series, on Thursday March 31st at 3:30 PM in CBC 140.
Winner of the 2009 Oscar for best foreign language film, Campanella’s gripping crime drama inventively uses a cold case murder mystery that frames Argentina’s Dirty War and military dictatorship. The film swept the Argentinean Academy awards, as well as winning numerous international awards in addition to its American Oscar.
Join us for Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, the second film in our International Noir screening and discussion Series, on Thursday, February 25 at 3:30 in SIPA 100.
The first installment of director Park Chan-wook’s revenge trilogy displays the same moral confusion and compelling narrative as his subsequent and more widely familiar Oldboy. Among Tarantino’s favorite directors, Chan-wook brings to the screen violence and emotional pain that are far from gratuitous, but rather are integrated into this story where good intentions yield disastrous results. Dr. Andy Strycharski, Director of FIU’s Film Studies Program, will lead a Q & A after the film.
Join us on the Frost Art Museum Lawn at 7:45 PM on Wednesday, February 17 for an evening of Music and Shakespeare.
DJ Maseo (De La Soul) will kick things off with a set, courtesy of BritWeek Miami. The set is followed by a wall cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, a freewheeling adaptation of Shakespeare’s play in the style of an old Hollywood musical. This is the last film of our Shakespeare and Film series, sponsored by FIU’s Student Government Association.
