Sunday7:00 PMFilm screening: ‘I am from Chile’
The Latin American Film Festival presents a screening of “I am from Chile,” the story of Salvador, who moves to London from Chile to study English and travel around Europe at his parents’ expense. He stays with his aunt Maria, who makes a rather decent living renting the rooms of her house to other immigrants.
But when a financial crisis back home leaves Salvador with no resources of his own, he has no other choice but to make ends meet with the help of Maria and his roommates, including a Russian drug dealer and his Japanese girlfriend, taking on a series of short-term, and at times, dangerous jobs. Difficult and challenging situations will force Salvador out of his protected bourgeois reality and into the real world.Open to Public: YesAdmission: FREEQuestions?: Charles St-Georges, 740-587-8503Address: Slayter Hall, Auditorium, Denison University, 200 Ridge Road, Granville, OH 43023Sponsored By: Department of Modern Languages, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, International Studies Program, Foresman Fund
